Metropolises are essentially under construction and thus always engaged in erasing its own footprints. We aim to evolve a niche reservoir for those footprints. On Bombay, we have a diverse collection – on the mill areas, the ’92-93 riots, roadside shrines, the 2004 elections, cemeteries of different communities, assorted interviews of citizens, fish markets and fisher folks, testimonies of banned bar dancers, popular and public cultures, footage from the fire brigade, documentation of various social movements and so on. Each is a different way of entering the city, both formally and textually.

We hope it is a collection that complicates the ways in which we look at our city.
