A Workshop on Critical Media Education

Organised by the FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO), in collaboration with the School of Media and Cultural Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences

Date: 16th February 2016

Venue: JB Hall, Films Division, 24, Pedder Rd, Cumballa Hill, Mumbai, 400026

Timings: Registration from 9.30 to 10 am, Workshop session from 10 am - 1 pm & 2 pm - 4 pm.

Content
The workshop will acquaint participants with strategies for understanding our mediated lifeworld, drawing on insights from semiology and cultural studies. It will facilitate a process of critical questioning of the mainstream media, examining how these reproduce the dominant relations of power, be they of gender, class, caste or race. The primary focus would be on how the media constructs our ‘normal’ gender identities. Through this exposure, participants would be in a better position to become discerning viewers and to critically reflect on their media consumption and how it influences them. They would also be in a better position to handle issues and problems related to media consumption. The workshop will also look at how participan ts can speak back to the media, through sharing examples of repurposing and mashups. The methodology adopted will be interactive, involving the use of exercises/screenings/ discussions. The media materials analysed would include TV commercials, print ads, films, newspapers and Internet content.

Participants
The workshop will accept 35 to 40 participants. Early registration will ensure your participation.We welcome students (at BA and MA levels), teachers, parents, activists and all those who feel that they would like to discuss and understand issues related to media representations and how we engage with them. All those who have either laptops or tablets/devices on which they could work are requested to bring them along, for use in exercises.

Telecast of SMCS film 'Do Din ka Mela'

Dear friends,

We are pleased to announce that the film 'Do Din ka Mela' (A Two Day Fair) will be telecast on the New Horizons – IPDA slot on DD National, in two parts, on Feb 6th and Feb 13, 2016 at 12.00 noon. Please do watch and share.

Best,
Anjali and Jayasankar

More about the film:

Do Din Ka Mela / A Two Day Fair
58 mins, 2009, produced by SMCS, TISS, directed by K.P. Jayasankar and Anjali Monteiro
 
"Nothing in the world will last – it is but a two day fair" sings Mura Lala Fafal, drawing inspiration from the Sufi traditions of Sant Kabir and Abdul Lateef Bhitai. He is accompanied on the Jodiya Pava (doub le flute) by his nephew Kanji Rana Sanjot. Kanji taught himself to play and make his own flutes after hearing the music on the radio. Mura and Kanji are Meghwals, a pastoral Dalit community that lives on the edge of the Great Rann of Kutch, in the Western Indian state of Gujarat. They are both daily wage labourers and subsistence farmers in an a rid zone. The film is a a two day journey into the music and every day life of this uncle-nephew duo, set against the backdrop of the Rann. The Great Rann of Kutch is a vast salt marsh/desert that separates India and Pakistan. Before the Partition the Meghwals moved freely across the Rann, between Sindh (now in Pakistan) and Kutch. The music and culture of the region is a rich tapestry of many traditions and faiths, an affirmation of the syncreti c wisdom of the marginalised comunities that live in this spectacular and yet fragile area.

Awards and Recognitions
IDPA Gold for Best Script 2009
IDPA Certificate of Merit, Best Documentary 2009
Commendation, RAI Festival of Ethnographic Film 2011

SYNOPSIS
Duration: 52 mins/HD/Bengali and English
On 18th February 1983, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, more than 2000 Muslims were killed in the town of Nellie and its
surrounding villages in Assam, India. People’s homes were burnt down and their fields destroyed. Most
of those who died were old people, women and children. Till date the Nellie massacre, remains on the
margins of India’s public history, and is virtually wiped out from the nation’s collective memory.
The documentary film What the Fields Remember revisits the massacre three decades later. From the
survivors, Sirajuddin Ahmed and Abdul Khayer’s, retelling of the event, and their struggles of coping
with loss and memories that refuse to fade away, the film attempts to explore ideas of violence, memory and
justice. It also tries to understand how physical spaces that have witnessed the violence continue to
mark people’s relationship to history and memory. What the Fields Remember also attempts to raise
larger questions around collective memory – of what we choose to remember and why we choose to forget.

SAVE THE DATE. Launch of South as a State of Mind #6 [documenta 14 #1]





Readings, Talks, and Screenings 
to launch the documenta 14 publication program
with South as a State of Mind #6 [documenta 14 #1]

February 10, 2016, 6:30 p.m.
Harrington Street Arts Centre 8,
Ho Chi Minh Sarani
(Opposite the American Consulate, next to ICCR) 
Suite No. 5 & 25B, 2nd Floor, Kolkata 700071

Featuring Deepak Ananth, Moyra Davey, Amar Kanwar, and Naveen Kishore

With Adam Szymczyk, Artistic Director, documenta 14; Quinn
Latimer, Editor-in-Chief of Publications, documenta 14; and Natasha
Ginwala, Curatorial Advisor, documenta 14

Possession and dispossession, displacement and debt-it seems that the stories that condition our
present are inextricably born out of the stories that conditioned our past. The first of four special issues of South as a State of Mind, temporarily reconfigured as the documenta 14 journal, examines forms and figures of displacement and dispossession, and the modes of resistance-aesthetic, political, literary, biological-found within them. In essays, both literary and visual, as well as poems, speeches, diaries, conversations, and specially commissioned artist projects, the first issue of the d14 South  considers dispossession as a historical and contemporary condition along with its connections to archaeology and the city, coloniality and performativity, debt and imperialism, provenance and repatriation, and feminism and protest.

To launch the inaugural issue of the d14 South, documenta 14 has organized a series of public events, in Athens, Kassel, Berlin, Dhaka, and Kolkata, that bring the disparate voices of the journal, as well as  those outside of it, into conversation in cities across the world. This February, South  goes to India for a launch event, organized in conjunction with Seagull Books in Kolkata, on February 10, at the Harrington Street Arts Centre. For its launch in Kolkata,  South  has invited Seagull Books' founder and director Naveen Kishore, art historian and writer Deepak Ananth, and artists Moyra Davey and Amar Kanwar to join documenta 14's Natasha Ginwala, Quinn Latimer, and Adam Szymczyk for an evening of readings, talks, and screenings that open a dialogue into the South  journal's key concerns while exploring literature as a critical art practice both within the context of Bengal and the global South, and outside of it.

Deepak Ananth, based in Paris, has written extensively on artists practicing across India and Europe, considering their visual languages in relation to situated social histories, international reception, and individual poetics. Artist and writer Moyra Davey's works in print, photography, and film explore the nature of intertextuality, travel as citation, and personal ephemera in literary as well as visual exchanges that act as memory thresholds between public and private spaces. Kolkata-based publisher Naveen Kishore is a pioneering figure in the field of independent publishing in India, bringing into circulation internationally renowned authors and Bengal's most significant fiction writers, theorists, and historians. His longstanding correspondence with a range of authors will be presented as a set of readings.
Filmmaker and artist Amar Kanwar employs film as a structural process to narrate histories of violence and division, as well as engage networks of activism, the poetry of the dispossessed, and the continuous struggles for democratic society in South Asia. He will discuss the context and reception of his work The Lightning Testimonies  (2007), first presented at documenta 12, at the Assam State Museum in 2015, a collaboration with the KNMA and the Women's Rights organization, North East Network.

South as a State of Mind is a magazine that was founded by Marina Fokidis in Athens in 2012. Beginning in 2015, the magazine temporarily becomes the documenta 14 journal, publishing four semiannual special issues until the opening of the exhibition in Athens and Kassel in 2017. These special issues are edited by Quinn Latimer, documenta 14's Editor-in-Chief of Publications, and documenta 14 Artistic Director Adam Szymczyk. The documenta 14 South  is conceived as a medium for research, critique, art, and literature that parallels the years of work on the d14 exhibition overall, one that helps define and frame its concerns and aims. As such, the journal is a manifestation of documenta 14 rather than a discursive lens through which to merely presage the topics to be addressed in the eventual exhibition. Writing and publishing, in all their forms, are an integral part of documenta 14, and the journal heralds that process.

Through this collaboration with documenta 14, The Seagull Foundation for the Arts continues its multifaceted role in actively supporting and disseminating arts and culture publishing, as well as critical theory. This launch event is hosted at Harrington Street Arts Centre, where Seagull has previously organized several events and exhibitions, including a forthcoming solo show by K. G. Subramanyan, titled 'Sketches, Scribbles, Drawings.'

Biographies
