Call 2: Working sustainably internationally
Before we look at International 'professional' exchange, we need to first reflect at our passports and the power that we are accidentally born into
I come from India where caste hierarchy & privilege is unescapable. If you are born in a higher caste you are blessed and if you are born in a lower caste you are cursed. Education, Basic human rights, Dignity, Social status, Mobility, everything about you identity arises from here. I am not from the high caste neither i am from the lower caste. I was born with some opportunities on my lap. Same way i see 'passports' as a 'global caste system', I believe that your right to travel cannot be determined by the passport you accidentally get at birth. This would be my starting point with the group. I would like to create a knowledge base where we can examine our privilege and would like to propose alternate perspectives, raptures, utopian/dystopian proposals for a more inclusive world. i would like to create provocative proposals and radical thought experiments concerning passports and power dynamics to shake our pre-existing knowledges and power pockets which we so deeply hold onto.
I would like to publish my research and findings through blogs, video works, interviews, articles, experiments and publish it online and in the post covid world create a lecture-performance from the material generated, which i would like to not perform in theatres but in more alternate spaces, public spaces.
Mostly in the evening 4 pm onwards, weekends are also possible, i work as a freelance artist based in Amsterdam. so i can be flexible.

What role does the curator* hold in transforming environments whose trajectories are all intertwined with processes of globalisation? How are ephemeral experiences curated, archived and re-evoked across space, time and digital access, consumption and saturation? How can curatorship subvert the algorithms placed upon us and how can safety, solidarity and an ecology of sharing be upheld throughout?
