Visual Memories of Hyderabad

Curated by Madhu Reddy & Aditya Mopur

Visual cultures are among other things also about urban spatial practices and behavioural norms – in some sense – technologies – being deployed for tactical purposes.Their histories reveal much about the city itself. Visual cultures are about history and erasure. They are about walking and remembering and talking and changing.

Imagine if we all got our image archives and put it all in one place. Then take these images and build a timeline for the city, watch how the city unfolds. How little details we have forgotten surface to the brim of memories.

We hope to start on this project by requesting you to look into your family albums and share with images which have been taken in public spaces or show public spaces with you in them. Bring them to the Do Din event and get them scanned. With the help of the trickle of all the images we hope to build a timeline of the city in the days to come.

So, scour your albums for images of Hyderabad
Bring them to the Do Din event
Get them scanned with all the info
Wait to see what unfolds!!
