Boom and Leisure (AU) feature on ‘Kinetic City’ exhibition

Rahul Mehrotra will bring the programme Urban Landscapes-Indian Case Studies to a close with his lecture and exhibition The Kinetic City.

During this programme, we have looked at some of the consequences of “top-down” formal master planning in Delhi’s desolate new towns through the eyes of contemporary photographers, and have considered ways of compensating or adjusting to some of the problems which result from the imposition of over-determined spatial visions, a theme that Rahul Mehrotra in particular will discuss and other guest writers have considered.

Event 

WHAT WE CALL WINTER: A Production Set for Ideas

(Bombay: 5-8 December 2012)

Convenors: Rahul Mehrotra, Ranjit Hoskote, Kaiwan Mehta

‘WWCW is a constellation of events that is designed to open up various directions of cultural and historical inquiry while eluding fixed institutional or disciplinary mandates. It will act as a stage for new relationships to emerge among initiatives in the arts, architecture, urbanism and culture at large. WWCW is presented as a production set for ideas that will, we hope, circulate into the cultural bloodstream of Bombay. It is a prototype for a full-scale festival of ideas, which is intended to take place in 2013.’
