subTerrain explores the artist's role as a citizen, as a political being. With nationalistic and religious tendencies on the rise, as they are in Indian society today, these questions are especially explosive. With her complex video space "Hamletmachine" Nalini Malani offers a powerful metaphor for the violent religious conflicts that rocked Mumbai/Bombay in January 1993. And Navjot Altaf's video installation "Lacuna in Testimony" focuses on the pogrom-like riots of Hindu mobs last year in the province of Gujarat. The ethnologist Julia Eckert, interested primarily in issues of collective identities, conflict genesis and conflict resolution, is an expert on the subject of Hindu nationalism.
