International Residency November - December 2002
Shortly after the KHOJ Studios building came into being in Khirkee, a few International Residencies were organised between 2002 and 2004. KHOJ was fortunate to receive funding from NIFCA and the Ford Foundation to execute these projects.
About this edition
2002 marked the year the KHOJ Studios building came into being in the anomalous urban/rural environment that is the Khirkee village. The physical structure anchored an erstwhile, tentative, fluid entity into brick and mortar. KHOJ sits on the edge of Khirkee Gaon – an ‘urban village’ very close to Malviya Nagar, situated in the south of Delhi. The Khirkee Village was established in the 13th Century and known for its famous and stunningly beautiful Khirkee Masjid (mosque) built in 1380 AD. KHOJ Studios, began as an experiment – a ‘what if’ enquiry after 5 years of annual workshops, when there was a need to move beyond the workshop and towards more sustained programming.
The International Residency 2002 was modeled on the KHOJ workshop with a smaller number of artists, three international and two Indian, marking the beginning of KHOJ‘s work admidst Khirkee.
