Event Description

The Exhibition Critical Zones. In Search of a Common Ground. will be on display at the Science Gallery Bengaluru from February 16 to March 17, 2024. We invite applications from artists of all genres, living and working in Karnataka or Kerala, with an idea for a performative intervention during this period, in response to/engaging with the thematic of the Exhibition. The selected project will receive a one-time grant of 75,000 INR towards production and execution and will be included in the Bangalore leg of the tour. For a long time the reactions of Earth to our human actions remained unnoticed, and have now finally – not least due to recent international climate protests – moved into public consciousness. The exhibition project Critical Zones invites visitors to engage with the critical situation of the Earth in a novel and diverse way and to explore new modes of coexistence between all forms of life. The travelling exhibition was conceived and first exhibited at ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (2020-2022) based on a concept by Bruno Latour and Peter Weibel. The original exhibition has been adapted for local audiences in a close dialogue between the curators, art mediators, and the participating Goethe-Institut. Each station will include further dialogues and co-creative moments to investigate and analyse what are issues of importance for each particular location, its Critical Zones, and its inhabitants. For the Goethe-Institutes in South Asia, a travelling adaption of Critical Zones titled Critical Zones. In Search of a Common Ground. is co-produced by the ZKM | Karlsruhe and the Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai, and co-curated by Daria Mille and Mira Hirtz. Send in your application via the online form with a detailed project proposal (max. 500 words), 1-4 images, CV and links to current/past work.

Deadline for submission: January 3, 2024
