The Chaos Trilogy - III

The three exhibitions that form the Chaos Trilogy open the conversations on the chaotic situation we are embroiled in to examine the various crises that have taken centre stage in the last three decades in India. The first two parts of the exhibition, titled Disorder Under Heaven and Aliens in a Foreign Land were held over 2022–23, and looked at the themes of the growing social chaos since the nineties; and the questions of home and homelessness, respectively.

Out of Here, That’s My Goal

In this final exhibition, as part of the Chaos Trilogy, we examine the ecological crisis and map various artistic responses to the impending doom. The ongoing environmental crisis originated with modernity and has escalated in the last three decades because of the increased exploitation of natural resources. This problem has also led to the rise of climate refugees, mass displacement and disenfranchisement of citizens, and aggressive destruction of ecologically sensitive areas with the help of newly formed laws.

Kafka's writing inspires the title, and in this context, it does not propose an exit from this situation; instead, it advocates departing from the status quo if we need to imagine an ecologically sensitive future. The mainstream discourses on the ecological crisis and the strategies of resistance are mainly anchored from a Eurocentric perspective. The global south is obscured from these discussions. It is often held responsible for this crisis due to heavy dependence on fossil fuels, large-scale manufacturing units, and archaic waste disposal systems without addressing the exploitative nature of the global capitalistic system. Furthermore, we must understand the limitations of alternatives, such as lifestyle environmentalism, that blame modern consumer culture as the root cause of ecological problems. We need an urgent shift of frames sensitive to the context of the global south to understand the material interests of the global south in saving the environment. How could we harness such an interest to confront the owners of capital who are responsible for this crisis? This exhibition proposes alternative perspectives to look beyond the local, the parochial, and the community to think about planetary solidarity and human emancipation.
