Interdisciplinary Project
State of Nature in India

State of Nature in India aims to better understand complexities of anthropogenic processes - a term that depoliticises the current ecological crisis - and critique what it means through a focus on India. It seeks to dissolve boundaries between multiple practices by bringing together artists, cultural practitioners, natural and social scientists, policymakers, activists and thinkers, initiating cross disciplinary conversations in multiple formats. The programme began with a conference in August 2018.
