Amol Kisan Patil about Sweep Walking

As part of the Kamarado project, the Global Collaborations Online editorial team has interviewed several of the exhibiting artists in order to unpack some of the historical complexities that run through their works and the exhibition. Co-curator Kerstin Winking spoke with Amol K Patil about his work Sweep Walking, Indian middle class life and the legacy of his father and grandfather.
