Khoj invites proposals for ‘The Undivided Mind’, a four-week international residency for artists whose work explores the intersection of art and science.

At first, it may seem that the pairing of Art & Science is an atypical choice, as the two fields and methods of practice have almost universally been represented as diametric opposites of each other. However, on closer examination, the similarities between artists and scientists far outweigh their stereotypical differences. Both are dedicated to research and to asking the big question- what is true? Why does it matter? How can we move society forward? Moreover, both the lab and the studio are spaces that famously encourage open-ended enquiry and emphasis on process. In tune with Khoj’s commitment to cultivate an environment that allows for experimentation and innovation, the Art & Science residency will be a step towards furthering the explorations of interdisciplinary practitioners.

 

This is the second edition of a Khoj residency focusing on Art + Science, to know more about the first edition, please click here’
