Transgressions (2001) is a "video/shadow play" by Nalini Malani (1946, Karachi). This immersive installation employs an archive of stories from different cultural contexts and presents these in a fragmented narrative. The thesis focuses on the different ways in which these stories can be read, how the video/shadow play functions as a medium, and reflects on the way in which the work was presented in the 2017 exhibition Nalini Malani: Transgressions at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. It thereby reflects on the working of memory and the political in the post colonial context.
