17 : 00 | Ahmedabad
Arthshila Ahmedabad’s Film Showcase this week features ‘Nostalgia For The Future’. A film on Indian modernity, the making of the citizen and the architecture of the home. It looks at imaginations of homes across four examples of buildings made over the period of a century. These are Laxmi Vilas Palace in Baroda – the gigantic home built by a progressive monarch in the late 19th Century; Villa Shodhan in Ahmedabad – a private residence which represents the idea of domesticity within Nehruvian modernity, designed by Le Corbusier; Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, which epitomises the Gandhian aspirations of the nation-state; and public housing in post-independence Delhi, designed by the Government of India to house refugees from Pakistan and the bureaucrats of the newly independent nation.
Join us for the screening at 5.00 pm on 10 February 2023 (Friday) and at 11.30 am on 11 – 12 February 2023 (Saturday – Sunday).
