SO­NIA KHU­RANA

Tehelka - - A HARD-WON VICTORY - KHU­RANA

Some of my favourites are from the dOC­U­MENTA (13) Fes­ti­val of Art. Amar Kan­war’s film/in­stal­la­tion is on the forcible dis­place­ments of in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties in Odisha. The Otolith Group’s film The Ra­di­ant ex­plores Ja­pan’s ill-fated en­counter with the un­sta­ble atom that cul­mi­nated in the Fukushima re­ac­tor melt­down. Wil­liam Ken­tridge’s The Re­fusal of Time in­vokes, through panoramic sound and im­age, the his­tory of the con­trol of world time, rel­a­tiv­ity, black holes, and string the­ory. Wael Shawky’s films Cabaret Cru­sades use 200 years old mar­i­onettes to re­play the 11th cen­tury Cru­sades, and the schism be­tween the East and the West.
