Desire Machine Collective: Mriganka Madhukaillya and Sonal Jain

Collaborating since 2004 as Desire Machine Collective, Sonal Jain and Mriganka Madhukaillya employ film, video, photography, space and multimedia installation in their works. Assuming their name and theoretical disposition from Anti- Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia, a seminal text from 1972 by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze and psychoanalyst Félix Guattari, Desire Machine Collective seeks to disrupt the neurotic symptoms that arise from constricting capitalist structures with healthier, schizophrenic cultural flows of desire and information. French Philosopher Michel Foucault’s preface to his text “Anti- Oedipus” read as ‘an Introduction to a Non-Fascist Life’. Drawing on the ideas from this work, Jain and Madhukaillya confront the many forms of fascism that lead to violence and injustice through their practice, both regionally in Guwahati, Assam, and around the world.
