Shuddhabrata Sengupta

How does a series of anxiety-producing events and incidents play out in urban situations in the course of the perpetration of ?terror? that claims not only bodies but biographies as well? Can it be said that the discourse about ?terrorism? also makes claims on those same bodies and biographies? How can we read images and media narratives about this topic from the city of Delhi? Shuddhabrata Sengupta is an artist, writer and member of the Raqs Media Collective, co-initiator of the Sarai Program at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in Delhi, India. Most recently, Raqs Media Collective was a co-curator of Manifesta 7 at Ex Alumnix, Bolzano, Italy and the collective's work in contemporary art has been exhibited at international art venues most prominently at Documenta 11, Kassel, the 51. Venice Biennale and art biennals in Istanbul, Liverpool, Guangxhou, Taipei and Sydney, besides of several other international venues. Sengupta works at the Sarai Media Lab and is member of the editorial collective of the Sarai Reader Series. Sengupta lives and works in Delhi, India.
