Contemporary Art: Prof. Manuela Ciotti In conversation with Premjish

The Italian Embassy Cultural Centre presents the first in the series of talks and activities of 2017 organized by Future Collaborations, a curatorial initiative conceptualized by Premjish. Manuela Ciotti is Associate Professor of Global Studies, Aarhus University & Fellow, Institute of Advanced Study, JNU.

Re-making the contemporary - The art-architecture-archeology-heritage complex at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale

This talk analyzes the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) as a site for the encounter of contemporary art, its venues, architectural styles, the mobilization of archeology around the lost port of Muziris, and heritage discourses. This encounter is termed as an art-architecture-archeology-heritage complex. The talk argues that while the KMB is anchored to the investigation of the contemporary, it operates through making large use of portions of the regional past and its diverse material worlds.
