This conversation between Munish Wadhia and Åsa Bharathi Larsson takes place within the frames of Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts. In this conversation, Wadhia and Bharathi Larsson, both of whose research weave in and out of print and printmaking, have a conversation about their common art practice/research. Munish Wadhia is an artist in residence as part of Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts and will in conversation with Åsa, share his research and work within the project, which amongst other things, includes acts of erasure in the construction of a particular and singular Swedish national identity.
The title for the conversation, “A Sahib’s War”, is borrowed from Rudyard Kipling’s short story, in which Kipling writes about a Sikh soldier, Umr Singh, narrating and navigating the Second Boer War.
