The seven week long residency takes place in Kolkata, West Bengal, India and in Santiniketan, West Bengal, India.
For the Indo-European Residency Project Kolkata, three artists practicing different art forms (one from Germany, France and India) will work and explore the cities together, for six weeks in Kolkata and one week in Santiniketan. During their stay, the artists will meet for a productive exchange with artists, NGOs and others in West Bengal. The aim of this residency is the creation of an individual or collective art project. The engagement with fellow artists from different countries along with personal artistic experiences will help create a new cultural space for inspiring ideas and producing entrancing results.
