The aim of the Indo-European Residency Project Kolkata is to provide a platform for cultural exchange and engagement – with the arts in all forms, with international and local artists, and with the city itself. Kolkata is steeped in a deep and overwhelming cultural history and has at the same time been a pivotal point of generating new ideas in the field of contemporary art.
This Residency offers a space for artists to engage in cultural exchange and discourse with India and Europe. The participating artists get immersed in the city of Kolkata and its cultural scene, while creating an opportunity for artists from Kolkata to gain exposure to global developments in the arts. This also places Kolkata, a cultural hub, in a more prominent place on the world map as a thriving place of interest with immense potential to be explored.
The first edition of this Residency started in 2017 with three partners, Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata and Alliance Française du Bengale in collaboration with Kolkata based art gallery CIMA (Centre of International Modern Art), with the kind support of the Franco-German Elysee Fund. The third Indo~European Residency in 2019 grew from strength to strength with the addition of The British Council. The present edition welcomes the Consulate General of Italy to the team of partners.
