Bozar, Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels, Belgium , 30.1107.12.2013


30.11.2013 Performances by Indian artists
07.12.2013 Presentation of work-in-progress created during encounters

Four Indian artists encounter four European artists. In the course of a “blind date”, they explore the potentials and (im-)possibilities of transcultural working together.

Thematically framed by the exhibition “The Body in Indian Art”, the  encounters developed ideas and  processes relating to the body in India and Europe.

During the  one week platform, the artists investigated similarities, differences, and sources of inspiration. This was followed by a public presentation of multiple transversal processes.

This 4th edition of Monsoon was co-produced by Bozar with the collaboration of Europalia, ICCR and Trancultura.
