Challenges before Cultural Resistance: Methods of Intervention
Any intervention of the Left in the field of the dominant media must be guided by an adherence to politics and seek to fundamentally alter the relations of artistic production and make art more accessible to the people. A democratic politics cannot be asserted through an undemocratic set up. Through its performance of Bush ka Matlab Jhadi the Jana Natya Manch has indeed proved its ability to handled 'large' forms of performance. But it was the call of its politics which disabled it from repeating the show beyond WSF. For, the WSF provided a certain cushioning environment where Janam could put up such a 'large' show. If the WSF provided the funds and the infrastructure it produced precisely those conditions which Janam cannot obtain on its own. And Janam need not obtain such conditions.
