Portrait of Raghav Kaneria, Jyoti Bhatt, 1974/1975, Baroda (also Vadodara), Gujarat, India, Digital image, DC.00240

Join us for the screening a film from the series A World Within. In this series of films that respond to MAP’s collection, filmmaker Amit Dutta looks at cultural objects as portals that can help us map our past, both critically and creatively, and explore the possibilities that lie ahead in the future. This screening will showcase Bat-like Devil Chaser with a Top Hat.

Bat-like Devil Chaser with a Top Hat is a poetic journey through Jyoti Bhatt’s photography, offering a unique portrayal of India over time. Unlike images that mark public events and are traceable to some narrative that marks the collective memorialization process, these pictures present the underlying non-narrative; like a hidden river, flowing quietly beneath the surface.
