The art of aoto-mobility, Vehicular Art and the Space of Resistance in Calcutta

The art of aoto-mobility, Vehicular Art and the Space of Resistance in Calcutta

Abstract
The article examines the images and texts on privately operated public buses
in contemporary Calcutta as a form of popular culture. By situating the
vehicular art within the larger socio-political milieu of the city, this paper
analyzes the manner in which the artwork acts as a unique mode of communication
and everyday resistance. A close reading of the relation between
the images and texts enables us to grasp the spatial logic by which subaltern
groups make room for themselves within the bourgeois frame of the city.
