Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in partnership with Kalakendra, will organize an art exhibition featuring a range of multidisciplinary artworks presented by eleven awardees of the ‘Futures Beyond the Self 2020' project, initiated by Goethe-Institute Bangladesh. The Kalakendra curatorial team has curated this exhibition.

The KalaKendra  gallery space to host the exhibition and to be open for visitors from 10th March to 8th April 2021, starting from 4 pm to 8 pm, every day.

The awardees are Priyanka Chowdhury (research), Arifur Rahman (short film), Karkhana Collective (music), Murshed Jahangir (visual art), Parsa Sanjana Sajid (research), Emran Sohel (visual art), Samsul Alam Helal (photography), Sumana Akter (visual art), Shahla Islam (short film), Tahia Farhin Haque (visual art) and Tehai Interdisciplinary Art Initiative (performance art).

The initiative seeks to provide a space for new ideas to flourish and for continued societal and collective engagement. It seeks to support both individuals and collectives in their endeavour to reflect, critique, and suggest alternative futures and pathways of “being in the world”.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the environment of cultural engagements in the blink of an eye. The everyday of the cultural scene has moved online, and this move has both disconnected some initiatives and activities, while, at the same time connected others. 

Under these circumstances, the Goethe-Institute Bangladesh invited all Bangladeshi artists, art collectives, cultural activists, and cultural organizations in late September to apply for funding under the initiative “Futures beyond the Self”. 

The results came November 27 after an in-depth evaluation process led by a panel of juries.
