Kunst & die Stadt - Kunst in Indien

Einige Artikel auf dieser Seite sind nur auf Englisch verfügbar!

As promised, Art & the City will bring you updates on current happenings in the art and culture scene in Bangalore. We are proud to announce the launch of our next Residency programme – read on!

Bangalore is abuzz as no less than 10 German residents descend on the City in this expanded edition of the bangaloREsidency.

Our Residency programme has been conceived as a collaboration between the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore and various innovative and contemporary art/cultural spaces in Bangalore, with a view to offering German aspirants a space conducive to creative output and the opportunity to work with Indian artists/experts, in the challenging context of Asia's fastest-growing metropolis. The Residencies are designed to involve mutual exchange so that both the visiting Germans and the local community reap the benefit of fresh perspectives and expanding horizons.

The project began with a single residency at 1 Shanthi Road, but has grown in popularity and scope and the nine much sought-after residences that are now on offer attract several hundred applications with each call. Our partner organisations range from art arenas and ateliers to theatres, festivals, NGOs and educational institutions. Currently the following institutions, all of which have widely-differing profiles, are part of this project:
  • 1 Shanthi Road Studio/Gallery (Code: Pioneer)
  • Jaaga - Creative Common Ground (Code: Nomad)
  • Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology (Code: Hybrid)
  • Jagriti Theatre (Code: Thespian)
  • Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts (Code: Contemporary)
  • Experimenta India Video Festival-Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology (Code: Cutting Edge)
  • Yuva Chintana Foundation (Code: Transform)
  • Pepper House-Kochi-Muziris Biennale (Code: Confluence) 
  • The Bangalore Literature Festival (Code: Scribe)
Here for the benefit of a wider audience is a summary of the comprehensive immersion into the local cultural scene that the Residents will be treated to in their first week in Bangalore.

Editorial


Neuer Avatar für Art & the City!


Seit einigen Jahren bietet Art & the City nun schon eine beliebte, globale Online-Ressource für aufschlussreiche Artikel zu unterschiedlichsten Facetten der Kunst und kulturellen Szene Indiens, bislang mit dem Fokus auf vier großen Städten.

Die Artikel und Essays, von informativen Exposés bis hin zu anspruchsvollen Kritiken und detaillierten Berichten, wurden speziell zu diesem Zweck in Auftrag gegeben und geschrieben von prominenten, international renommierten Persönlichkeiten aus der Kunstwelt. Wir laden Sie ein, in dieses Archiv einzutauchen, um einen Eindruck darüber zu gewinnen, wie sich die indische Kunstszene entwickelt hat und deren Weg in die Zukunft zu begleiten.

Diese reichhaltige Datenbank an Wissen, die bis in das Jahr 2009 zurückreicht und Bildende Kunst, darstellende Künste und experimentelle Kunst umfasst, wird auch in Zukunft ein außerordentlich wertvolles Archiv für jeden bieten, der sich für aktuelle, kulturelle Themen interessiert.

Allerdings ist es an der Zeit, das Projekt im Lichte der Verbesserungen von Online-Interfaces und Internet-basierten Ressourcen weiterzuentwickeln. Dieser Prozess ist bereits in vollem Gange, und Sie können sich auf den Relaunch von Art & the City in einem brandneuen, interaktiven Avatar freuen. Neben dem Angebot an ultramodernen, benutzerfreundlichen Optionen, wird das Web-Journal auch frische Perspektiven bei Inhalt und kreativen Dimensionen einführen, wobei der Fokus wesentlich auf Bangalore liegen wird - dem pulsierenden kulturellen Zentrums Südindiens, das sich in der internationalen Kulturszene so herausragend präsentiert.

Besuchen Sie auch in Zukunft das aufregend-neue Art & the City!
