Gegenseitigkeit: Überlegungen zu den um Spekulation angereicherten Städten des globalisierten Indiens und deren Kunstschaffenden

Sonntag, 14. April, 11.15 Uhr  | Kunstmuseum Thun


Die indische Kuratorin und Pro Helvetia-Stipendiatin 2013 Gitanjali Dang (*1980) spricht über die Kunstszenen der beiden Metropolen Delhi und Mumbai.

Gitanjali Dang ist freischaffende Kuratorin und Kritikerin und lebt in Mumbai. Ihre Kritiken und Artikel zu Kunst und Kultur im Allgemeinen sind in führenden lokalen und internationalen Publikationen wie Frieze und Art-Agenda erschienen.
