Event Description : BOOK LAUNCH "Embrace Our Rivers Public Art and Ecology in India"

Edited by Ravi Agarwal, Florian Matzner & Helmut Schippert

Published by Speaking Tiger, India & Kerber, Germany

A project by Goethe-Institut, Chennai

Art and its ideas have a special role to play in shaping our consciousness. Urban spaces, particularly those in rapidly expanding cities in new developing economies are in direct conflict with nature, as rivers, wetlands, green areas, are being changed to suit urbanization’s short term goals. To help re-think urban space as democratic and in coexistence with nature, Embrace our Rivers was proposed as a public art project in the coastal megacity of Chennai, India. It was to be held on the estuary of the very polluted river Cooum, where the highly polluted river meets the beautiful, wide Bay of Bengal at the Marina Beach, one of the longest beaches in any city.

Thirteen artists were invited to respond with their ideas, including: Arunkumar HG, (India) | atelier lebalto, (France & Germany) | Atul Bhalla, (India) | Rohini Devasher, (India) | Gram Art Project, (India) | Mischa Kuball, (Germany) | Layout Collective, (India) | Parvathi Nayar, (India) | Ooze and Marjetica Potrč, (Germany & Slovenia) | raumlabor, (Germany) | Gigi Scaria, (India) | Anna Witt, (Germany) | Suyeon Yu, (Korea)

Though the project could not be installed on site, the artist’s voices found expression in an exhibition

– DAMnedArt, which was held at the Lalit Kala Akademi, Chennai in early 2018 and now, in this book-a first on public art and ecology in India.
