What Is It?

Spend the weekend at Artsy cafe with Aanchal Malhotra, the author of the wonderful and poignant book Remnants Of A Separation. She has been a speaker at JLF (Jaipur Lit fest) and is an oral historian working with memory and material culture. Her book will take you through a unique and picturesque journey of the Partition through material memory. And this weekend she is going to be at Artsy to answer all your questions!

Tell Me More

We all associate memories with certain objects. We all have objects which are close to our hearts, which have been in our family for ages. Through the Art of History workshop on the 26th of May, Anchal will help you archive those memories. You can create your own story with the memory you have attached to the object. A unique workshop which sure to strike a chord in your heart.

There will be an exhibition of photographs of objects that have travelled through the partition, painting a vivid image of the time. A showcase of all the pictures used in her book and beyond. This exhibition will be on from the 26th of May until the 28th of May.

Anything Else?

Although for the workshop they do need you to sign up, for the open house you can walk in with your friends. Unfortunately, there are limited seats, so hurry up and sign up here.
