Every year, we invite artists from Germany to live and work in Bangalore for one or two months, collaborating with our local cultural partners on exciting artistic projects. In 2018 we have 11 artists, located at 9 different host organisations. 
impREssions, an 8-part series, documents their stint in Bangalore, beginning with a week-long orientation programme, continuing with intensive exchange with their hosts and local artists, and ending with a final public showing.
Watch this space for fresh impREssions of the bangaloREsidency 2018!
