Changing the point of view:
Dramaturge and curator, Felizitas Stilleke goes back to the original meaning of “curare” (taking care) and drifts through the local art scene. Carried merely by an euphoric, open will to connect social dynamics and exchange empathy, trying to find and write a new global narration of criticism and/with/through love, collectively.

Residency Project: Call for Curation
An interactive audio-reflection by Felizitas Stilleke
Call +91 80 30456568
In Call for Curation, Felizitas Stilleke takes us on her personal and intimate journey of encounters, with inspiring people and a lot of (shared) confusion about the possibilities or borders of intuitive curating, via her perception. For the artist, curating signifies a social practice, that is ruled by interaction and intuition. During her time in Bangalore, the artist started to record herself and found that speaking her impressions and experiences out loud is the best way to stay connected to herself, and the narration turned into an oral transmission, created in the interaction of thoughts, within the specific moment of alliance. Meeting different artists and activists initiated a snowball effect of interaction which continues. Give Felizitas a call (+91 80 30456568) and experience the power of connection... see the city of Bangalore through the eyes of a foreigner who was welcomed.
Call for Curation was developed by Felizitas Stilleke during her bangaloREsidency@Jaaga in 2017, with support from the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan, Jaaga DNA, and Exotel, and premiered at Bengaluru Fantastic.
