Bio Last Updated


Bhavneet Kaur is an interdisciplinary artist and designer hailing from Punjab. She considers her creative practice nomadic and informed by situated learning.  Kaur works across spatial and editorial design, curatorial and artistic research. Her mediums shift from objects, installations, publications, and film.  Through her kinaesthetic approach, she vividly explores the thematics of body, identity, ancestral memory, and embodied female knowledge.

Her curiosites push her to explore non-imperial material culture while navigating social structures dictated by modernity/coloniality. With methodologies shaped by vernacular and indigenous realities, she addresses pluriversality in the Indian context. Her recent project, my body is a walking exhibition, challenges the imperial gaze and traces the colonial roots of exhibition design.

Kaur holds a Master’s Degree in Contextual Design from Design Academy Eindhoven (2023), for which she received a cum laude. Her background lies in Retail and Exhibition Design from MIT-ADT University, Pune (2017). She has also gained a certificate from the distinguished Maria Lugones Decolonial Summer School (2023) hosted by Van Abbe Museum and Utrecht University. Her work has been included in various platforms, including the Dutch Design Week 2023, Milan Design Week 2024, The Couch HetHem, and Brown History
