IB18: St John’s Market: Jubeda Khatun: The Forgotten Partition of 1971
Venue: St John's Market
Dates: 09/08/2018 - 22/08/2018
Times: 09:00 - 17:00
An exhibition that will engage the audience in discovering the Bangladesh Liberation War and the 1971 Bangladesh genocide. East Pakistan seceded from West Pakistan with the help of India.
The audience will hear and see recordings of spoken word and poetry, visual art, and learn about Bangladeshi culture. From food, songs and traditional displays of ornaments and furniture typically found in Bangladesh.
As a spoken word artist, I have written bilingual texts around my dual identity of being British born and coming from a Bangali background.
There is much that is unknown about the culture of Bangladesh and its partition. There is a small minority of Bangladeshi families in Liverpool and the diaspora is growing.
Come and hear the stories. Follow this exhibition from colonisation, partition to liberation and migration.
