Between Memory and Museum – Arun Wolf, Gita Wolf, Various Artists



Arun Wolf, Gita Wolf, Various Artists

This pioneering dialogue with 38 extraordinary folk and tribal artists from across India focusses on the idea of a museum — particularly for communities historically regarded as anthropological subjects. In their visual responses, artists reflect on the museum as an institution, and the way it preserves, creates and disseminates knowledge. Do these representations communicate a lived life? What are the artists’ own ways of remembering and passing on tradition? And finally: who has the power to put whom in a museum? Artists featured in this book include several award-winners of extraordinary talent, including Bhajju Shyam, Durga Bai, Jagdish Chitara and Bhaddu Hamir. Each of these artists has exhibited in India and elsewhere, being featured in exhibitions of outsider and folk art from India.

Tara Books is an independent publishing house started in 1994 by Gita Wolf. Over the years, she was joined by other creative friends who have helped Tara grow organically and in many directions.

In addition to the office team, 25 artisans presently work at Tara bookmaking workshop. They’re particularly well-known for the screen-printed books made entirely by hand—from the paper to the printing and binding.

An integral part of Tara publishing is a pioneering engagement with the rich diversity of Indian folk and tribal art. Over a period of 20 years, Tara has brought a range of such artists into the book form for the first time.
