Vinita Gatne: Unsettling the Corrective: Aporetic Maneuvers Against Policy


Advisor/tutor: Rachel O’ Reilly

Arnhem, August 2020


This thesis investigates lived and plural modes of knowledge produced and performed about global capital and foreign investment at the peripheries of a major urban metropolis Mumbai, India - specifically in fishing and agricultural communities. By weaving in songs and speeches, I elaborate on anti-capitalist resistances in order to bring to the forefront aporetic maneuvers that are employed by grassroot resistances to disrupt processes of enforcing policies framed specifically for the global capital.
