In the backdrop of India’s pro-democracy protests against the anti-Muslim citizenship law, grave human rights violations in Kashmir and massive police crackdown in north-east India and Muslim neighbourhoods throughout the country, India witnessed a revolution led by women and students. The artwork points at Indians complicit in systemic, state-sponsored violence against minorities, privileged and dissociated from basic ground realities by donning their ‘apolitical’ badge when convenient. Instead, we decry this pretence of being ‘apolitical’ as  a conscious political decision. The politics of being apolitical is rooted in retaining wealth, power and control over minorities and the economically oppressed.
