The Bengali identity can never surpass the melancholy of the partition of Bengal implemented during the colonisation of the subcontinent. EPAR OPAR in Bengali essentially means the two sides of the border. Activated by the desire to disentangle the relationships and socio-political agendas inherited from the colonial era, the eight new projects in EPAR OPAR aim to examine the experience of living in a diaspora where ‘the border’ between West Bengal in India and Bangladesh vanishes.
