Some Questions as to the Nature of Your Existence

2007 India/Austria, single-channel video installation directed by Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, 26 minutes



English with Czech subtitles


A single-channel video installation, which explores the rarefied world of Tibetan Buddhist debate. Built around three sets of debates dealing with the basic Buddhist concepts of impermanence, lack of self-existence, and dependent-arising, the piece allows the viewer an opportunity to participate in this unique dialectical practice while highlighting its relevance to the modern world.
