Delhi Dialogues: Mapping the Everyday

India Foundation for the Arts (IFA)
invites you to
Delhi Dialogues: Mapping the Everyday
Presentations by Surajit Sarkar and Bhavin Shukla

Thursday, March 31, 2022 | 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM IST | Zoom and Facebook Live

How does an archive go beyond the popular images of monuments and landmarks to engage with the everyday life of a city? How does it enable curatorial interventions to forge dialogues between people, their city and lived history?

Join us and listen to Surajit Sarkar and Bhavin Shukla reflect on these questions. Surajit Sarkar will speak about the Delhi Visual Archive (DVA) at the Centre for Community Knowledge, Ambedkar University, and the vision behind its creation. Bhavin Shukla will tell us about his engagement with the DVA’s collections and the resultant travelling exhibition – Delhi Dialogues (2017).

Surajit Sarkar is an Associate Professor and Coordinator of Centre for Community Knowledge at Ambedkar University, Delhi.

Bhavin Shukla is an architect and educator based in Ahmedabad. He is the co-founder of The Design Toolbox, a hybrid practice oriented towards collaborative architecture and urban design.

Bhavin Shukla received a fellowship from IFA in 2017-18 to work with the Delhi Visual Archive at the Centre for Community Knowledge, Ambedkar University, under the Archival and Museum Fellowship initiative, made possible with support from Tata Trusts.

This session has been organised as part of the Project Showcase@IFA, a series of online presentations to showcase, discuss and engage audiences with the diverse projects we support and implement across programmes.
