The bangaloREsidency-Expanded was conceptualised in 2017 to further intensify the reach and sustainability of the residency project. During extended feedback sessions and discussions with hosts and bangaloREsidents, the need to encourage and support artistic traffic in the opposite direction was felt. Young, emerging Indian artists stand to profit immensely from exposure to other cultures/artistic arenas.
The aim of this initiative is, therefore, to establish long-term artistic exchange in a sustainable format that intensifies creative exchange through a novel practice of collaboration wherein Indian artists get to live and work in Germany, gain access to the art practice of the other culture and thereby enrich their own creativity.
Application process for 2018 is complete.
