Shriya Malhotra, Partizaning – Participatory Urban Replanning:
“I think this is a very valuable work for social practice and DIY urbanism in India! From Landownership to Responsibility : Zamindari to Zimmidari is a thought-provoking ethnography which documents community art interventions in the urban village of Tigra. It is useful to a cross-section of audiences, primarily for highlighting urban india’s often unique and rapidly transforming ecosystems. It makes a very useful contribution to the emerging discourse of DIY urbanism, civic arts and of socially engaged arts—and the value and limitations of creating ‘change’. The story of Tigra, tucked away amidst the malls and highways of Gurgaon, encourages us to rethink the relationships of art and the public, and of urban interventions in different contexts. Finally, the project is a reminder to practitioners of the possibilities and limitations of cross disciplinary, cross-cultural collaboration.”
