Synopsis: This gilt-edged artist's book by the celebrated Indian artist Nalini Malani was inspired by the writings of the German critic and novelist Christa Wolf on the ancient Greek myth of Cassandra. Through more than 40 exquisitely reproduced images, Malani retells this story from the perspective of the unheard woman whose insights are constantly ignored or relegated to heresy.
Here, Cassandra symbolizes the unfinished business of the feminist revolution--acknowledging the ways that female logic and foresight have remained disparaged and overlooked despite all of the advances we have made as a society.
Nalini Malani was born in Karachi in 1946--before the partition of her country into the nations of India and Pakistan. A committed social activist, Malani often bases her work on the stories of those who have been marginalized by history.
About the Author: Nalini Malani (b.1946) is one of the most prominent Indian artists working today.
