Kolkata Partition Museum


The Kolkata Partition Museum (KPM) Project aims to establish a Partition museum in Kolkata, focussed on the experience of Bengal. Its twin foci are historical specificity and cultural continuity: it is dedicated to memorialize, in the most comprehensive manner possible, the specificity of Bengal’s Partition history, its aftermath and afterlives; it is equally keen to emphasize the cultural continuities between West Bengal and Bangladesh, in terms of their common living heritage - language, literature, food, fabric, and the performing arts - and to encourage collaboration between them. And it aims to do so by involving public participation in its programs and gearing all its activities in a way that make it more accessible and interesting to the public at large.
