Khoj 1999 (Modinagar)

‘One position, one voice, lacks dialectical resonance… [dialogue offers] a latticework of thoughts and points of view that interweave and complement each other’ Suzi Gablik, Art critic and artist

The Khoj 1999 workshop was marked by intense dialogue and debate and much of the work produced was underlined by a strong socio-political conscience. Simultaneously, the work of performance based artists, Michael Shaonawasai from Thailand, Song Dong fromm China, Anne Marie Culhane from the UK and Subodh Gupta, India blurred boundaries and provided interesting overlaps between performance as art/performance art.

Through these workshops over three years, Khoj has endeavored to integrate various art forms to provide a forum for artistic freedom and experimentation. With twenty-four artists at Sikribagh, Modinagar, Khoj 1999 was packed with strong individuated, politicised and poetic voices that debated with critical artistic interventions.
