 #PostModem & Make up tutorial: How to Hide from Cameras

– Maya Dodd and Anahita Sachdev –

The video addresses the Supreme Court order passed in December 2016  to mandate respect to India’s national anthem. The ruling that all persons be forced to stand in

movie theaters when the national anthem is broadcast before film screenings is patently absurd when it disregards the differences in ability or citizenship. By examining theories around the

state and political citizenship the artists attempt an activist intervention through this video of the very idea of patriotism.
