In the Times of Madagangwara
Installation view at KHOJ International Artists' Association, New Delhi
‘Power-misInformation’ has substituted ‘Power-Knowledge’ with a decade of political weaponisation of digital devices for social communication. Who authors misInformation? An individual? Or is it the monopoly of a nation, leader, and corporation? How does one consume, participate, create, and dispense misInformation?
“In the Times of Madafangwara” is an investigative process of a computerized world(nation)building that inquiries into the meaning of power and propaganda in a post-social condition controlled by an authoritarian regime.
