Event Description : "Asia Assemble" is a three-day gathering of artists, practitioners, academics and arts institutions from  around Asia in New Delhi. Structured as a series of moderated conversations, discussions, screenings  and public presentations, Asia Assemble seeks to understand the possibilities, modalities and  urgencies of arts and cultural work around Asia in 2017.  In our individual, collective and organisational capacities we continue to understand and negotiate  our local, national and continental conditions to respond to immediacies in a largely ambiguous Asia.  Khoj enters this conversation from the perspective that Asia has never been purely self-delimited,  but rather the product of interaction with other regions. New imaginations of Asia are not an  affirmation of Asiacentrism but rather an attempt to overcome a logic dominated by egocentrism,  exclusivity, and expansionism.    

We ask: Where is the ‘silk’ in the New Silk Route? In an era of neoliberal govermentality, resurgent  nationalism, and ‘democracy with Chinese characteristics’, can we find possibilities of coexistence and  communication in other Asian structures? How do the arts, receiving funding sometimes from states,  sometimes from regional bodies, from international organizations and multinational corporations,  play into existing and emergent structurings?  Through conversations, Asia Assemble aims to provide a platform to share challenges, explore  connections, discuss strategies and exchange ideas to collectively speculate on new frameworks for  our times.  Participants include Amar Kanwar (artist, India), Ashish Rajadhyaksha (CSCS, India), CAMP (artists,  India), Cosmin Costinas (Para Site, Hong Kong), Gridthiya Gaweewong (Jim Thompson Art Center,  Thailand), KUNCI Cultural Studies Centre (Indonesia), Patrick Flores (University of the Philippines),  Reem Fadda (curator, Palestine), Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam (filmmakers, India), Salwa Mikdadi  (NYU Abu Dhabi), Yawnghwe Office in Exile (artist, Myanmar), Zoe Butt (The Factory Contemporary  Arts Center, Vietnam) amongst others.

Asia Assemble is supported by Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller.
