Installation: video, light and sound
A 40-minute video placed within a “set’ of a radio studio. The work re-enacts selected broadcasts Subhash Chandra Bose made from Berlin on Azaad Hind Radio. These are interwoven with texts from the Jawaharlal Nehru University Nationalism lecture series of 2016. The spine of the work consists of conversations with the actors on performing Bose.
