Arijit Bhattacharyya (b. 1994, Howrah) is an artist and independent curator currently  living and working in Germany. His practice revolves around contentious narratives of  resistance through social engagements, design interventions, large murals and lecture performances. His artistic discourse is deeply rooted in the dissecting trajectories of  socio-political history and its implications in cultural practices. As a curator, he is  invested in artistic negotiations that investigate methods of social disobedience. 

He holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the Bauhaus Universität Weimar and also  holds another master’s degree in Visual Art from the Maharaja Sayajirao University of  Baroda. Arijit has been part of exhibitions and curatorial projects from the Röda Sten  Konsthall, Göteborg Biennial (GIBCA Extended), Index Berlin, Arts of the Working  Class, Goethe Institut Thailand, Serendipity Arts Festival, Khoj International Artists  Association, Photo Kathamndu, Oyoun, Interflugs, Haus Der Statistik, Kochi-Muziris  Biennale to name a few. He had his debut solo exhibition at ChertLüdde Berlin. 

Arijit currently teaches at the Bauhaus Universität Weimar at the international  master’s degree program Public Art and New Artistic Strategies.
