The Wall of Babel - A collaborative participatory word-wall
by Nikita Maheshwary & Premjish Achari
‘The Wall of Babel’ was conceptualised during the second edition of Future Collaboration and was exhibited as a part of group exhibition ‘Workers and Farmers: The Panorama of Resistance (Prelude)’ in April 2018.
“Through our series of exchanges of words or what we call as “utterances”, we both attempt a new way of collaborative writing, thinking about the trauma of the displaced. We would like you to join us and expand the network of words and create a wall of utterances and expressions from different languages, contexts and experiences. Let us raise a Wall of Babel, instead of a lofty tower, a memorial for resistance in our scattered languages.”
