Description


Remember, Repeat, Inhabit looks at three questions in relation to the idea of the viewer:

What happens when one reads someone else's reading of someone else?
What happens when something repeats itself in Kieslowski's work?
Is there a possibility of an ontology of space?

The book attempts to understand the idea of 'viewing' from the inside, not simply as an ontological premise but definitely affected by it. Three differing contexts are looked at-a French madman's notion of the 'self', a Polish filmmaker's notion of the 'everyday' and an Indian performance artist's notion of 'memory'. Through these on-the-surface contrasting artists and texts, a particular idea of a 'viewer' emerges. This viewer is the key to an understanding of something almost elemental in the nature of the idea of 'viewing' in the contemporary context of twenty-first-century Delhi.
