Issue 11 of Motherland sits close to the bone, touching on the border between the world and ourselves: skin. It is clothed, painted, pierced and inked, but it is also the envelope in which our pain, pleasure, and identity resides, an expanse that is far from a blank canvas, but is instead subject to shifting social definitions of health, or beauty, or regarded for external identity markers, like colour.
Motherland deals with the issues and ideas that shape contemporary Indian culture. Each issue focuses on a single theme, and explores that theme through essays, art, photography, and reportage. Featuring up-to-the-minute visual material, fresh faces and original voices, the magazine covers and uncovers new Indian trends and talent. Hails from: India Frequency: Quarterly
