State of Nature

The current global situation demands a stronger and renewed focus on the environment. State of Nature intends to create a broader conversation between multi-disciplinary ideas of nature, as a way of opening new discourses, in the framework of the Anthropocene.

The project began in 2018 with a conference conceptualised in collaboration with the artist and environmentalist Ravi Agarwal. In 2022 the Goethe-Institut Mumbai produced and hosted an exhibition, conference and a series of lectures and workshops aimed to create conversations between artists, academics, activists, scientists etc. who work on this area took place. It was co-curated by Ravi Agarwal and the poet and essayist Ranjit Hoskote.
