Release of Khirkee Voice Issue #2

Announcing the launch of Khirkee Voice issue #2! This special edition of Khirkee Voice will be released to coincide with the India Art Fair 2017, and has a special focus on Multi-Culturalism in Khirkee Extension.

Khirkee Voice is an quarterly, local newspaper produced by artist and researcher Malini Kochupillai. The newspaper was first produced during Khoj’s 2016 edition of Coriolis Effect: Currents across India and Africa Residency, during which Kochupillai was a resident artist.

Khirkee has been in the limelight because of the violence outbreaks against its African expats and Kochupillai’s been capturing this through her photographs since the past four years.This newspaper is a medium for Kochupillai to spread awareness amongst the citizens of Khirkee about the different stories going on in the village and to document its diversity. Half the copies are printed in Hindi so as to cater to a wider audience.

The newspaper will be published every quarter, and will be available to pick up at Khoj Studios, as well as distributed widely in Khirkee and other neighborhoods around Delhi. Previous issues will be posted online with the publication of each new quarterly issue.
