Thinking together in difficult times

KHOJ’s first International Artist Workshop functioned as an experimental art laboratory under an autonomous, open ended organisation led by artists for artists.

22 artists participated in the workshop: 10 international and 12 Indian. The workshop was conducted at Modinagar, approximately 55 kms from Delhi.  Modinagar is a town that has grown around a group of industries founded by the late Gujarmal Modi in the Nehruvian days of independent India. Sikribagh, the venue for the KHOJ workshop, is an old bunglow built in a quasi-colonial style, amidst acres of land, mango trees and a pond; it was a refuge from the decaying industrial city. This space was generously offered to KHOJ for the workshop by SK Modi. Sikribagh has continued to be used as a workshop site for many years since.
