Other Species, Other Times
A program of single channel moving image works curated by Lalitha Gopalan and Anuj Vaidya, 60 minutes
Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK), room 229, Lerchenfeld 2, 22081 Hamburg

In a reversal of contemporary exhibition practices, this program presents single-channel video art and installations in a repertory film space, and suggests novel ways of considering bodies in movement. These bodies are neither discrete nor constant; they challenge borders and boundaries, and prefer entanglements with other species and other kinds. Varied in their consideration of the digital and in their use of performance practices, the works are primarily by artists living in Mumbai, Goa, and New Delhi.
