Digital Colonialism

This webpage is an addition to the Sword (Indore, ca. 1800) displayed in the V&A Museum located in London, United Kingdom. ‘The sword was taken from the Maharajah Holkar at the battle of Mehidpor in 1817, and presented by the army (with the permission of the Government) to Sir John Malcolm’. It represents the physical colonization of India in the 19th century. This webpage was made 2 centuries later to show how corporations and countries in the West continue to assert dominance and control over the rest of the world. This form of colonization takes place in the cyberspace.
