Young artists collaborated on the digital artwork ‘The Fearless Call,’ which reimagined the directives of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s historic March 7, 1971 speech.
The artists investigated what sparked a nation to struggle for independence in the digital mural mash-up, which was coordinated by think-tank CRI and its youth secretariat Young Bangla.
People flocking in front of Bangabandhu’s Dhanmondi 32 house were transported back to the wonderful chapters of history as a result of the exhibition.
From the flying of the red and green flag through Bangabandhu’s incarceration by the Pakistani occupying force in 1971 to his family’s assassination in 1975, his mansion has been the fertile ground for political turnarounds.
Bangabandhu’s contextualization of the persecution that would legitimize an independence movement is depicted in the joint artwork. It investigates the guidelines for how a conquered nation’s independence struggle would unfold. The spectator can explore and learn by stitching together different sections of the artwork with fine-tuned typography.
Themes depicting Bangabandhu’s charisma, 23 years of colonial rule, horrifying incidents of slaughter, calls for an economic boycott, protecting the protection of at-risk communities, war preparations, and a clarion appeal for freedom have all been mixed up into one creative performance.
Reesham Shahab Tirtho, Saiyad Saif Ali, Sushmita Das Dewan, Ishrat Jahan Shaeera, Faiaz Rafid, Ahsana Angona, and Md. Mojjammil E Hamid is the dynamic artist behind ‘The Fearless Call.’
Because the Joy Bangla Concert, which pays homage to the father of the nation’s March 7 speech, was halted for the second year in a row because of the Covid-19 outbreak, this artwork served as an alternative in transmitting history through artistic ways.
Professor Nisar Hossain of Fine Arts, lauding the artwork in the digital realm, recalled artists’ pioneering role in reinstating Bangabandhu’s philosophy in post-1975 Bangladesh when anti-liberation forces went to any length to silence pro-liberation voices.
Professor Nisar praised painting techniques that depicted the ‘Himalaya-like stature as mentioned by Fidel Castro,’ and suggested that the artwork be organized to a greater extent in the coming years.
MPs Nahim Razzaq and Nahid Izhar Khan, as well as the director-general of the Power Cell, Mohammad Hossain, and Dr. Mamun Al Mahtab, spoke.
