About this programme

The workshop that took place at KHOJ, Delhi, was part of an international project dealing with the individual in a changing urban environment. Other workshops were to be held in Marseilles, France and Helsinki, Finland. The inhabitants of the Khirkee village neighbourhood first learned some basic video shooting and sound recording skills, following which they directed their own autoportraits determining the way they wanted to represent themselves and the way(s) they wanted to be perceived. Afterwards, they filmed a place that had changed in their neighbourhood, while talking and recording the memories and feelings linked to that place. The final work was a video installation – the portraits of people and places filmed in different cities would be connected. New final portraits were to be created combining the images of a person and the place to which they felt attached to formulate one image.
