What does art do?
What can art be?
At Khoj, we believe that art is of intrinsic value to society; it is a crucial form of inquiry that provides unique insights and drives change through affect. We are an autonomous not-for-profit contemporary arts organisation based in New Delhi, India. Since our inception in 1997 in New Delhi, we have been committed towards building global networks and solidarities, especially in the subcontinent. Through our programs we support and incubate emerging, experimental and transdisciplinary creative practices and pedagogies.About Us
