Look, Stranger! is a trans-media curatorial project that draws on the aesthetic ideologies and approaches to image-making and materiality as cultivated by the Bauhaus, which celebrates 100 years in 2019. The project will travel across South Asia (and its diaspora) in search of emerging lens-based practitioners working with photography, film and new media to explore questions of community and detachment, belonging and place. Echoing the eponymous Auden poem, Look, Stranger! is an opportunity to explore evolving relationships between the self and world through experimental forms.
