Maoism in India is still very much alive, and in several areas Maoist guerrilla fighters continue to combat the Indian state. Sanjukta Sunderason’s chapter maps the traces of Mao and Maoism in India’s long twentieth century. Drawing from the visual culture theorist Nicholas Mirzoeff’s notion of visuality, Sunderason explores three key moments of Indian Maoism in relation to art: the iconography of resistance developed by the Communist Party of India in the 1940s, the Naxalites’ ‘statue-smashing’ in Calcutta in the early 1970s and the afterlives of Maoism in Indian art from the mid-1970s to the present.
