Karnataka - Bavaria: A double road to artistic exchange

About Double Road:

''Double Road – towards fresh forms of artistic exchange between Bangalore and Munich” is an innovative approach to sustainable cultural exchange between Bangalore and Munich, developed after several Munich-based artists participated in the bangaloREsidency project. Christian Engelmann, Beate Engl, Maximilian Erbacher, Fabian Hesse, Hermann Hiller and Ralf Homann are co-curators and producers of the project. The host artists are not just hosts to their Indian guests in the conventional sense, but also co-produce the artistic projects of the visitors through logistical, thematic and supportive practice. This includes the complex network in place, covering technical know-how, machinery and equipment, specialists, etc.

About the exhibition:

The project Double Road proves that despite all the differences one can also find some similarities between the cities Bangalore and Munich when it comes to: acess to public spaces, usage of ressources in the future or the changes in working environment. The exhibition showcases large-sized sculptures, multimedia installations, intra-city gardens, paintings and participative performances. Following artists will be represented at the exhibition:

Bhavani GS, Bharatesh GD, Dayananda N, Indu Antony, Navin Thomas, Nihaal Faizal, Paramesh Jolad, Ragini Bhow, Renuka Rajiv, Shridhar Gangolli, Suresh Jayaram, Suresh Kumar, Umesh Kumar, Yashas Shetty, Tara Kelton, Varsha Bhide und Suresh Kumar G. (Zero8Zero).
