MUMA Boiler Room Lecture: Raqs Media Collective
MUMA in partnership with AsialinkArts and IMA are pleased to co-present a keynote lecture by Raqs Media Collective members Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. The lecture will be convened by Natalie King, Senior Research Fellow, Victorian College of the Arts/Senior Curator MPavilion.
The Raqs Media Collective enjoys playing a plurality of roles, often appearing as artists, occasionally as curators, sometimes as philosophical agent provocateurs. They make contemporary art, have made films, curated exhibitions, edited books, staged events, collaborated with architects, computer programmers, writers and theatre directors and have founded processes that have left deep impacts on contemporary culture in India. Raqs (pron. rux) follows its self-declared imperative of ‘kinetic contemplation’ to produce a trajectory that is restless in terms of the forms and methods that it deploys even as it achieves a consistency of speculative procedures.
