About this edition

For the year 2020, Khoj is delighted to announce the start of 5 new projects across India as part of Peripheries & Crossovers: art as social practice. The participants for this year are Baaraan Ijlal, Divya Chopra & Rwitee Mandal, Jasmeen Patheja, Sanyukta Saha and Shweta Bhattad. These projects will focus on violence against women, gender stereotyping and effects of urbanisation on gender-based inequalities. Through these distinct and diverse creative approaches, Khoj will continue to map the ecosystem that contributes to the landscape of socially engaged art practice in South Asia, and also continue to believe in the agency and responsibility of art and artists to affect social change.
