About The Undivided Mind
The theme of the 2016 edition of The Undivided Mind is ‘Health’. Within this broader framework, artists have been responding to three intersecting curatorial frameworks defined within health systems. Terrestrial Health refers to that which is on, or related to, the earth. It suggests an investigation into the physical health and structure of the body (both human and animal), the environment, the community, and the interrelations between these spheres. Mental Health refers to that which is of or relating to the mind. This sub-theme focuses on a psychological investigation of what constitutes health of the mind and raises questions about the ‘socially’ defined state of well-being, by virtue of which issues surrounding the legal rights and entitlement to personhood, for those living with a mental disorder, are left open for debate.  Finally, Extraterrestrial Health may refer to any object, being, or idea beyond planet Earth. This sub-theme opens up a space where the relationship between Earth and other planetary bodies can be studied. What does it mean for human existence when sending human life forms to Mars is projected to take place by 2020? What are the long term effects of and solutions for space debris if life projects out beyond Earth?

Funding support for this program was gained from Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance.
