A Cinematic Imagination: Josef Wirsching and the Bombay Talkies

A tribute to one of the forgotten pioneers of Indian cinema, the cinematographer Josef Wirsching, this exhibition showcased, for the very first time, original photographs and digital reprints from the Wirsching Archive. Taken between the 1920s – 60s, the photographs provided a glimpse to the aesthetic decisions, creative communities, and cross-cultural exchanges that were vital to filmmaking in late colonial India. The acclaimed production studio, Bombay Talkies, played a major role in defining the form of mainstream film in India, established by Himanshu Rai in 1934. The exhibition foregrounded the critical role German technicians and interwar image-making practices in the history of Indian cinema, presenting some of the best-known actors and technicians from Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis, to Jairaj, Hansa Wadkar, and Dilip Kumar.
