Tushar Joag | Lost & Found (?) Ideas of Democracy

Lost & Found (?) Ideas of Democracy questions the pillars of democracy and freedom through a series of interlaced processes that begin with workshops where school children will be engaged in preparing scrapbooks and other everyday objects that will explore the history of people’s movements in the country. The objects that are made will then be scattered on trains, each marked with a phone number.
Those items that find their way back to the artist either by commuters that return them or through retrieval from the lost & found department of local stations, will then be displayed in museum-type vitrines at CST Terminus carrying the names of the people who find them. The participatory work raises issues related to freedom, equity, representation and justice.
