Act & Accomplish

A collaborative project between Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Khoj International Artists’ Association and Nature Morte.

The performances, discussions, lectures and installations at Nature Morte emerge from a two-week residency in New Delhi involving artists and curators from Germany and India thinking around how the contemporary art world is ‘professionalizing’ by borrowing heavily from recent business literature and the operations of corporate entities (branding, asset management etc.). Enquiries are made into the nature and forms of performance, training, competition and evaluation that constitute the measure of an artist’s success.
