Coolitude

In 2015 Danny Flynn made a series of screen-prints using archival research material taken from historian Marina Carter. The original photographs depict Indian migrants who went to Mauritius on contracts of indenture in the early 1800s. The prints also incorporate Coolitude poetry by Khal Torabully.

In conjunction with ‘Becoming Coolies’, an AHRC-funded project at the Universities of Edinburgh and Leeds.
