Prayoga is a Sanskrit word, which loosely translates as 'experiment' in English but can also mean 'representation' and 'practice'. Thus Prayoga in this context refers to the challenge of expression that embodies much artists' film work. Edited by Brad Butler and Karen Mirza from the UK artist film and video lab no.w.here, this publication is an illustrated anthology of interviews and essays by curators, filmmakers, video artists and pioneers of 'Prayoga' in both Indian cinema and contemporary Indian art practice including Ashish Avikunthak, Elena Bernardini, Amitabh Chakraborty, Anuradha Chandra, Amit Dutta, Amrit Gangar, Shumona Goel, Shai Heredia, Mani Kaul, Kabir Mohanty, Navjot Altaf, Johan Pijnappel, Raqs Media Collective, Sanjiv Shah, Ashok Sukumaran, and Kamal Swaroop. These collected writings not only provide a unique insight into what it means to have a contemporary art practice in India today, but they also offer a significant reappraisal of the place of experimental film and video in India - as well as a non-western perspective on artists' practice to challenge the dominant US - and Euro-centric histories mainly known in the UK.

The Cinema of Prayoga is edited by Karen Mirza and Brad Butler
