Asia Assemble was a three-day gathering of artists, curators, academics and arts institutions from around Asia in New Delhi. Structured as a series of conversations, screenings and artist presentations, Asia Assemble sought to understand the possibilities, modalities, and urgencies of arts and cultural work around Asia in 2017.
n our individual, collective and organisational capacities we continue to understand and negotiate our local, national and continental conditions to respond to immediacies in a largely ambiguous Asia. KHOJ entered this conversation from the perspective that Asia has never been purely self-delimited, but rather the product of interaction with other regions. New imaginations of Asia are not an affirmation of Asiacentrism but rather an attempt to overcome a logic dominated by egocentrism, exclusivity, and expansionism.
