saza/punishment/ by ankita – April 16 & 17

saza/punishment/ entangles Hindu goddess Kali’s ultimate power and destructive nature with present-day authoritarianism and religious violence, using myth to unpack how Hinduism has been shaped into propaganda for nationalism by Western influence. Tracing Kali’s deification, saza accompanies her transformation into a colonized, fetishized, destructive image that upholds violence with her bloodied tongue. As she comes down from idolatry, Kali and her disciple engage in a dance of punishing forgiveness and forgiving punishment.
