In Context: Public.Art.Ecology 2007
KHOJ’s InContext:public.art.ecology program was initiated to create public dialogue around ecological issues through artistic projects and interventions; over two years through its InContext residencies, KHOJ has narrowed its focus to projects and interventions dealing with food.
About this edition
KHOJ hosted this International Residency in an attempt to explore the relationship between Ecology and Art in public spaces in the city of Delhi.
