Indian Post-Digital Aesthetics

Katja Müller, Rajkamal Aich


The artwork by Rajkamal Aich, presented in this photo-essay, is an example of post-digital aesthetics. His work combines photography with drawing and thereby creates new visions and contexts of mundane objects. A deconstruction of his work and an evaluation of the production context allow an understanding of this decidedly Indian form of what has been called post digital aesthetics. Viewing and analysing his artwork provides an understanding of one contemporary form of art in India, as it develops at the crossroads of photography, digital art and classical painting.
