Introduction If I try to articulate my last ten years of practice, I would like to consider myself as a propagandist. I say this without any irony. From studio-based visual art practice to community based engagement; from collaborative projects to continuous participation in different published mediums or online sites (magazine, newspaper, leaflet, article); from performance to photographic documentation, the manipulation of self-performative acts; from archival habits to a curatorial encounter with political context based productions in relation to solidarity with different socio-political movements; from working with theatre production, film festival, conference to organizing workshops, seminar, panel discussion; from regular basis interactions with different forms of practitioners and initiates dialogues through interviewing, circulating questionnaires, general meeting, sending letters or even non occasional chatting, debating, study circles and so on – each and every thing can come into the forefront within propaganda practice. But the concern and the context’s demands leads to the mode of engaging.
