Ghar Mein Shehar Hona part 1

Part 1 of the housing histories project, Ghar Mein Shehar Hona: From Janata Colony to Janata Colony (imaginary to destroyed), is online.

Ghar Mein Shehar Hona is a three-part history of housing in Mumbai, that evolved from live-voiced video essays that CAMP has presented at a number of architecture and other schools. Its current form is an example of what can be done with open-access archives such as Pad.ma, and is also a general purpose proposal for what an "edit" in cinema terms may mean today. The backend consists of an in-browser editing system, being developed by Jan Gerber. The front end provides a video player with archival links on pause.

Ghar Mein Shehar Hona part 1, also known as from Janata Colony to Janata Colony (Imaginary to Destroyed).

More about the project in its education setting, is here.

CAMP draws a series of lines between this and that exhibition. Not only between country A and country B, or horizontally between peoples or on the plane of "cultural exchanges" or "extra-national space", but vertically, or diagonally, reaching out to an actual place, to its actual power and presence.
