Can I work like this

WHAT’S COOKING? A re-arrangement | Eine Um-Ordnung (Can I work like this?) is a curatorial format conceived as a series that explores artists‘ working conditions. The 50-hour nonstop happening gathers 12 artistic, activist, and theoretical positions to simultaneously and collaboratively produce, present, discuss, and reflect, accompanied by scheduled contributions as SIDE DISHES. WHAT’S COOKING? creates various starting points and keeps the doors nonstop open for spontaneous guests for re-arranging. “Source of contagion” is the cooking area, which allows every guest to also be a host: Cooking, eating, intervening! In Ausstellungsraum Klingental, current questions about artistic engagement in political and social contexts come under the burning glass, tightened by the experience of the pandemic. (Can I work like this?) asks about how to continue.




Painting with Live Colours

Sujit, Baba-ji, Pawan Kumar Dubey.

An article for Swiss Future 1/2021 about the art practice of Sujit Mallik, member of the Delhi based art group WALA.

Art has the potential to point to the future through experimenting and struggling with the contemporary by opposing it defiantly. While the art market has become internationally commercialised, artists regain their autonomy by breaking free of restricting formats—working on the human scale in reality—where their practice touches upon questions of ethics and aesthetics in different forms, society is driven forward and alternative infrastructures are frequently created. The Indian art scene is no exception, immersed as it is in a sub-continent with such a multitude of cultures, religions, languages, and phases of modernising converging. Moving into the 21st century, the question of how infrastructure is organised will become a defining factor of the future in India and artists may have a say in precisely that.
