About the exhibition
The exhibition What does this have to do with everything else? puts the research of SLATO & OTLAS in parallels. The former uses the city of Bombay as it’s starting point, which, at the end of the 19th century, was the scene of a population control system set up by the British colonial power to stem the spread of a plague epidemic. OTLAS is interested in the clay soils consumed for pleasure by people from diaspora communities; a cultural phenomenon sometimes referred to as geophagy.
