International Workshop Mysore 2002

From 1997 until 2001, KHOJ conducted the International Artist Workshop mostly at Sikribagh, a quasi-colonial bungalow in Modinagar, offered for the workshop by SK Modi. The workshop functioned as an experimental art laboratory that brought together artists from all over the world to create a co-operative and non-hierarchical space, encouraging critical dialogue, exchange and the transference of information and skills.


About this edition

In 2002, the KHOJ International Workshop was held in Mysuru, recognised as the cultural capital of South India. The shift to the south was more than one of location; after the successful completion of the KHOJ International Workshop held in 2001, a process of introspection followed at the end of which the working group felt that despite the organisational and logistical comfort level that had been reached in Delhi, it was time to re-envision the International Workshop and give it a fresh impetus. Far from being a closed coterie of artists, KHOJ has sustained itself over the years largely because it has continually brought new artists on board, with a fresh energy and commitment to its unwavering mission to promote and expand experimental art practices across India.
