Exhibition: Dalit: A Quest For Dignity

December 8, 2018 - December 18, 2018


Dalit: A Quest For Dignity 

Nepal Picture Library

The struggle for dignity fundamentally shapes the Dalit experience in Nepal. The caste system in Nepal works by not only maintaining material inequality between the upper castes and lower castes but also by making honor and humiliation issues of everyday practice. Dalits in Nepal struggle to break the identity of untouchability that the dominance of upper castes thrusts on them. Since the start of the democratic movement in Nepal, Dalit activists have worked to create a space from which the exclusion of Dalits from public life can be challenged.

This exhibition is showing historical and contemporary photographs bears testimony to the history of social, economic, political and intellectual disadvantage that Dalits are up against. But it also shows how Dalits make resource of their own cultural pasts for a new and respectable identity.
