Connecting Histories: Shifting Cultures and Shrinking Collections” 03 Mar, 2017 – 04 Mar, 2017

CREDAI Symposium at Kolkata

The Symposium “Connecting Histories : Shifting Cultures and Shrinking Collections” is scheduled to be held in Kolkata, on 3rd & 4th March, 2017.

This symposium is a part of the Kolkata Art Festival 2017 a biennial event, brainchild of CIMA Kolkata, which has been designed to push the search for country wide talent in visual arts. The talk segment, within the boundaries of the Art Festival, will have seminars, keynote addresses, conversations, multidisciplinary discussions and presentations by leading experts from the field of visual arts, cinema, architecture, design, literature and liberal arts throughout the month of February 2017 in various landmark sites across the city of Kolkata, India.

Keynotes by noted international architects will be be anticipated closely by the architecture and real estate fraternity of the city as well as students and culture enthusiasts alike.

The Symposium within the thematic bracket of “Connecting Histories : Shifting Cultures and Shrinking Collections” will seek to present polemic voices spreading across nations and nationalities and shall certainly be of great value in this context. Supported by CREDAI Bengal, the apex body representing India’s real estate developers, this international symposium, through the gracious presence of renowned architects will highlight the interconnectedness between local, regional, national and transnational commitment and the greater role of architecture in this sphere.

PROGRAMME Day 1 - 3rd March, 2017 10:00 - 11:00 - Inaugural Session 11:00 - 11:20 - Theme Overview by Sonia Gupta SESSION 1 Humanizing Heritage: restoration, conservation, adaptive reuse, heritage responsive planning Situating heritage within the current climate of developmental pressures, this session challenges the widespread notion of perceiving built heritage assets as static resources to be conserved in materiality and in exclusion from its context – social, cultural, political or economic - and establish it instead as drivers of sustainable development that can address aspirations of contiguous communities. Through a dialogue involving both theory and praxis, this session seeks to revolutionize approaches to heritage conservation and management – encompassing both nature and culture, tangible as well as intangible - in order to bridge between the past and the future through conservation, restoration, adaptive re-use, technological innovations, rights based approaches, heritage responsive infrastructure development and integrated planning strategies, all achieved through participatory processes, towards creating a culturally democratic and inclusive environment. Moderator: Manish Chakraborty 11:20 - 11:30 - Introduction 11:30 - 12:00 - Sugato Basu 12:00 - 12:30 - Joy Sen 12:30 - 13:15 - George Fergusson (Key note address) LUNCH - 13:30 - 14:30 SESSION 2 Design Dialect: craft to contemporary This session explores how the vocabulary of architecture adapts itself to its context to successfully navigate ground realities and also transcend the banal to communicate larger theoretical underpinnings. In a scenario where buildings are expected to be self-explanatory physical forms summarizing the conceptual and epistemological parameters of their design intent, this session investigates how their development process confronts the dilemma of ancient craft traditions, colonial legacies of syncretism, and post-colonial indecision between Modernism and Revival. Examining the merits of transformation and transfer, this session discusses the philosophies that can both delineate the method and define the output of design and technological hybridization towards building autonomous design identities. Moderator: Abin Chaudhuri 14:30 - 14:40 - Introduction 14:40 - 15:25 - Kazuyo Sejima (Key note address) 15:30 - 16:00 - Palinda Kannangara 16:00 - 16:30 - Gurjit Singh Matharoo Interactive Session led by Manish Chakraborty and Abin Chaudhuri Day 2 - 4th March, 2017 SESSION 3 Where the City Sleeps: housing and living At a time of rapid urbanization, mass metropolitan migration, and mounting pressures on the cities’ infrastructure systems, this session explores in particular the aspect of an escalating housing deficit. Understanding the scenario in the light of neoliberal concepts of urbanism and social injustice, the session revisits people's aspiration and participation as a dichotomy of quantity and quality in housings against a backdrop of affordability. Thus, this session aims to encapsulate issues varying both in scale (from sanitation to waste management in the macro scale, and spatial character to flexible incrementatlity in the micro scale), as well as character (physicality in conjunction with polity, accessibility, financial viability, security, and human dignity). Moderator: Dibyendu Chakravorty 10:30 - 10:40 - Introduction 10:40 - 11:10 - Kaiwan Mehta 11:10 - 11:40 - Biju Kuriakose 11:40 - 12:10 - Sameep Padora 12:10 - 12:55 - Alejandro Echeverri (Key note address) LUNCH - 13:30 - 14:30 SESSION 4 Grand Moves: urban direction and movement With rising populations, demographic shifts, climatic changes, smarter technology and faster transit, it is critical that the design and engineering of urbanity too be radically shifted to suit altering human needs, and holistic approaches to sustainable urban development and planning be adopted, integrating multidisciplinary socio-cultural and economic processes with physical infrastructure. In a quest for high performing and equal-opportunity cities, this session investigates the DNA of the city as the route to make it livable, sustainable, and resilient through aspects such as waterways and waterfront development, public space-making, social infrastructure improvement and revitalization of the city's network of cultural institutions. Moderator: Ayan Sen 14:30 - 14:40 - Introduction 14:40 - 15:25 - Juergen Mayer (Key note address) 15:30 - 16:00 - Pratap Talwar 16:00 - 16:30 - Madhav Joshi 16:30 - 17:30 - Leila Araghian Interactive Session led by Dibyendu Chakravorty and Ayan Sen Summary and theoretical closure of the Convention by Ashish Acharjee

"ART SPACE GERMANY: REVISITED”

"ART SPACE GERMANY: REVISITED” in Kolkata in February 2017. The exhibition is about Germany as a 'space of art', and how the country’s open federal policies have greatly influenced the shaping and evolving such a space in Germany. The exhibition is the first of its kind, put together in the transnational form, based on foreign cultural policies of the European Union. Transcending the borders put up by categories of art forms, groups of works by Armando, Candice Breitz, Tony Cragg, Marianne Eigenheer, Ayse Erkmen, Christine Hill, Magdalena Jetelová, Per Kirkeby, Joseph Kosuth, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Nam June Paik, Giuseppe Spagnulo and Herman de vries stand for the myriad artistic variety to be seen in transcultural unity. By presenting the exemplary positions of the last thirty years, the exhibition follows the meaning and the influence that the men and women artists, living here and known internationally, have had on themes, media and forms of expression in the art discourse of today.
