About Ram Krishna Ranjan

I am a practice-based researcher and visual artist. I am currently a PhD candiadte at Valand Academy. My educational background is in Economics, Media and Cultural Studies and Fine Art. My longstanding areas of interests are decoloniality, migration, gentrification, memory and nation, and the intersectionality of caste, class, and gender. Through my moving-images based practice, I try to build conversations around place-specific issues of social, economic, and political justice.

About my PhD research

My PhD research considers the various possible applications of decolonial thinking within artistic practices (specifically filmmaking) that not only employs allegory as a from but also reimagines and repurposes it to address a specific set of critical issues. The research aims to develop two main questions:
How can the metaphorical concept of allegory be used as a practical decolonial device?
How can we mobilize a shift away from its western-colonial epistemic locations and deploy it for new decolonial work?
