Sessions

Rongin Shagor - Will you remember to keep us afloat? How does digitization change the course of memory and where is it headed?

Madhumita Nandi, Anja Saleh

Info
রঙিন সাগর Rongin Shagor translates to "colourful ocean" and views the ocean and our bodies as holders of memories, putting us in direct relation to bodies of water.
Will you remember to keep us afloat asks; Will you remember to keep us afloat asks; Who stays afloat - is remembered to stay afloat - and who will be forced to be forgotten?
