This episode of A Tall Order visits the Brunei Gallery’s current exhibition. Entitled “A Disappearing World,” the exhibit documents the lives of tribal Indians – Adivasis – displaced by mining. Speaking with Robert Wallis and Jennifer Wallace, photographer and writer on the project, this show explores problems behind India’s rapid economic growth, the displacement of people, and efforts at resistance.
