How might listening to the past together transform the sense of the knowledge held in common? The publication Coming to Know sets aside the visual techniques of the archaeological site, the museum and the larger project of colonial modernity and instead constitutes itself as a resonant structure – a future-oriented monument to historically situated listening bodies as well as a dwelling place for community now.
With contributions by Tanvi Solanki, Mark Payne, Annie Goh, Uzma Z. Rizvi, Annette Wilke, Andrew Ollett, Anurima Banerji, Tapati Guha-Thakurta, Phiroze Vasunia and others.
