The Colonial to Corporates interactive exhibition brings to light the enduring struggle of tea plantation workers forcibly brought by the British to work in Assam’s tea fields from the tribal tracts. Tea labourers, then and now, contend with low wages and high maternal mortality. Adivasi women have been at the core of this inter-generational system of labour that extracts profits on the backs of workers.
Through the use of photography, video and interactive technology, including 360 virtual tours, the Colonial to Corporates installation is a visual palimpsest of images from yesterday and today. First installed in Delhi and then captured in this digital installation, the exhibition seeks to foster understanding, reflection, and action to address human rights and rights at work for tea garden workers in Assam.
