In this series of articles Lawai BemBem talks about her time in Dresden in June 2019, where she began working on her new multimedia project titled Yang-Huk-Un: Confabulations which uses the Meetei Mayek alphabet-to-body writing system to investigate the body languages and movements lost in cultural and political assimilation.
The bangaloREsidency-Expanded, an offshoot of the bangaloREsidency initiative, aims at establishing long-term artistic exchange through a novel practice of collaboration wherein Indian artists get to work in Germany, gain access to the art practice of the other culture and thereby enrich their own creativity.
