National War Memorial Museum
Maulika Jain’s college project designed on the 3D software Blender. The Museum is divided into five different exhibits i.e. ‘Controlled Narrative’, ‘War Correspondents’, ‘War Profiteers’, ‘Civilians’ and ‘Soldiers’. The project came into being when the artist discovered most of the war museums glorify wars, weapons and “winning” the wars. This made her question, Who benefits from these wars? Which kind of stories get told? Who should be responsible for it? This project was an attempt to change the narratives used in the war museums. Hence, the vision of the National War Memorial Museum is to build a world where war is not used to instil pride, patriotism and nationalism, but seen as a failure of empathy, humanity and diplomacy.
