The seminar “Critical Juncture: Looking at Indian and Polish Cultural Collaborations” aims to critically reflect upon the ethical issues surrounding cross-cultural collaborations and creative exchanges in a globalised market. Focusing on the relationship between the individual/group and society, and problems of representation, artists, academics, and cultural theorists from India, Poland, and the United Kingdom are invited to talk about new methodologies of collaboration. They will present their views on important contemporary discourses around questions of agency, voice, and narration. By addressing the nature and influence of such exchanges, this public forum hopes to stimulate an open discussion on the significant artistic engagements between these nations, both historically and in the present-day.
The seminar is supported by: the Polish Institute in New Delhi, Win-Win Foundation, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland, Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit.
