2009 KHOJ Residency Programme


Can we save the planet and make the world a better place BY DESIGN?
Six designers try their worth in a six week residency programme.

Working at the intersection of art, design and media, the residency seeks to explore how media and design strategies may be used to push artistic practice beyond convention. Artists and designers from different regions of the globe will work together to devise processes and construct mechanisms using innovative design, new-media and exciting technology to push the frontiers of design experience and interaction, in a conducive and collaborative atmosphere.

About KHOJ

International Artists’ Association is an artist led, alternative space for experimentation and international exchange based in India.


KHOJ Studios, Delhi

Part of the global Triangle Arts Trust, KHOJ sees its role as an incubator for art and ideas, artistic exchange and dialogue in the visual arts. Through our programming we aim to assist and develop, forms of art such as media art, performance, video, environmental, public and community based art, sound and other experimental modes of cultural production.

As a deliberate policy our core invitees have been from South Asia which has resulted in the development of an active network of artists in the region. KHOJ seeks to promote cross cultural exchange within the visual practices of the ‘Global South’. Since our inception in 1997 artists from Iran, Egypt, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Lebanon, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Mainland China, Taiwan and several countries in Africa, have participated in our workshops and residencies.

Aims and Objectives:

* To actively assist, develop and promote new , investigative and experimental art practices in all media
* To promote discussion, understanding and appreciation of contemporary arts issues and to provide a forum for critical debate.
* To encourage and support the production and the exchange of ideas by Indian, South Asian and International artists through production, exhibition and dissemination.
* To actively facilitate an informal network of contemporary artists both within the region and abroad.
* To develop new and informed audiences.
* To support emerging artists and artists from smaller cities/marginal areas.
