Aisha Dasgupta: Private in Public

The BMW Guggenheim Lab’s projects and programs in Mumbai are shaped by our four Lab Team members: Aisha Dasgupta, Neville Mars, Trupti Amritwar Vaitla, and Héctor Zamora. We asked each of them to create a short video and share their thoughts on Mumbai and on the Lab’s primary theme: the challenges and opportunities related to public space and the choices Mumbaikars make to find a balance between individual and community needs. Here, Aisha talks about uses of public space in Mumbai, and the transition from “majority urban” to “majority rural” life in developing countries.
