Art and Environment Residency Aug-Sept 2004

The environment is beginning to be perceived as a political space more so than an ecological one; the notion of politics arises when modes of production, consumption and ownership rights are brought to the front line and forced to be considered. Artists, in turn are responding to this shift by becoming actively involved in the political tensions of the environment, whilst also responding to the  social and cultural issues which arise from such tensions. Within this context KHOJ in collaboration with CHINTAN, (an environment research and action group) organised the Art and Environment International Residency from August to September 2004. The residency focused on the importance of facilitating a sustainable balance between man and nature through restoration, education and multidisciplinary collaboration.
