Being the Change

Exploring the contexts and consequences of the rise of the Aam Aadmi Party, a new anti-establishment political party that has garnered significant social and political support in its initial foray into the electoral arena, this article examines the central dimension of party existence, namely, the processes of party-building or the ways in which rank-and-file party workers are recruited, mobilised, motivated and variously put to work. It draws upon three months of research and visual documentation of AAP's party-building efforts in three of the 70 Delhi constituencies where it fielded candidates for its electoral debut in 2013.
