Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project explores Shimla, the hillstation and former summer capital of the British Raj in India, as a "colonial heritage site" as well as a site of socio-urban planning in the past and present. The ultimate question that threads through the analysis asks, what is at stake in touring the colonial as a tourist or an academic, as a site of desire, nostalgia, and preservation?
