Post Colonial DilettantesRajat Sharma
, 2018, master's thesis
Abstract: The thesis begins a discourse into a need of an Indian film theory by exploring and
analysing the plenitude of relevant western theories. In order to do so it lays down certain
concrete relationships between ideologies, terminologies and their effect; as in what
exactly post colonial means, why it is important to understand the impact of colonisation
on culture and thus on one of the most mass consumed medium in India; films. The thesis
explores the depths and complexity of the relationship of these two and the other
influences that sprout from it for example the intensity of colonisation as a cultural project
and its influence on the social reality of the people, artists, thinkers (and in our case
specifically filmmakers) , who in turn reflect on this culture through various mediums
including films. The thesis examines the western plethora of film theory in order to
accentuate the contrast between film and cinema in the west and east and thus the
subsequent need to bring forth a new ‘Eastern Film theory’.

, 2016, master's thesis
Abstract: The motivation for this thesis was author’s experience as a traveling artists and questioning how experiences abroad influenced her artistic evolution. Nowadays, in the years of globalization and cross-border collaborations, it has become very common for artists to make international connections in order to seek inspiration, funds, connections, exhibition spaces, platforms on which to show their work, studios, workshops, and to establish an international career.
The idea of this thesis is to explore the phenomena of traveling artists through literature and analysis of the author’s personal experience and development as an artist in order to identify whether travel is a good practice that should be advised for emerging (or established) artists in order to evolve in their careers.
This thesis, “The Influence of a Change in Surroundings on Artistic Creativity,” questions how traveling influences artists and their creativity. It offers a historically overview of the subject and presents contemporary ways and opportunities for artists to travel and work in international environments.
In the second part of this thesis, the author presents poetical videos, the “An Artist Abroad – Video Poetry Series,” which were made during the research and through which the author expresses her feelings and observation of her new surroundings. Very personal and poetic work shows the progress and development in the author’s artistic practice, and it shows how new surroundings influenced her creative and production processes.
