The Yamuna Manifesto

The Yamuna and Elbe rivers came alive with the public art project held in Hamburg and Delhi in October and November 2011. Earlier in December 2010, a multi disciplinary seminar held in New Delhi, had conceptually initiated the project. This book is an outcome of some of the ideas, which emerged. A bilingual publication, combining the views of activists and artists, blurring boundaries between fact and the imaginary, it is an attempt to widen ideas around ecology, to re-territorialize it, and to move beyond binary narratives of catastrophe and untouched nature, to one of multidimensional reframings. With contributions by Manoj Mishra, Himanshu Thakkar, Sheba Chhachhi, Vivan Sundaram, Atul Bhalla, Raqs Media Collective, Till Krause and Ravi Agarwal.
