zeropowercut creates collective situations of inter-caste-actions of research and production.

We make art to present about how caste is coded in the Real. Our practice is an attempt to realise the transformational bahujan proposition of becoming other.

The processes we engage in are learned from the open source, and our societies (the streets and the workshops).

Through materials, image, text, history and philosophy, our independent research on caste analyses how the caste-ideological-categorisation of workers as ‘Sudra’ (meaning menial and unknowledgeable) dissociates Knowledge and Work.
