The objective of&nbsp; &lsquo;&rsquo;Noise life&rdquo; is to sketch out a history of the different ways in which we develop knowledge about ourselves:&nbsp; economics, biology, psychiatry, medicine and penology. It seeks to analyze these so-called sciences as very specific &ldquo;truth games&rdquo; related to specific techniques that we use to understand ourselves.<br />&nbsp;<br />Apart from Project 88, Desire Machine Collective will also extend the exhibition to Galerie Max Mueller, Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai. The space will act as a buffer zone between the exhibition at Project 88 and the panel discussion scheduled for 28th August at MMB. The exhibition will primarily comprise of still photographs. These images were shot during the making of noise life and extend the idea of schizoanalysis. Some of the images have been primarily shot in super 8mm. The panel discussion on 28th August will comprise of an interlocutory introduction to the work displayed, by Dr. Kaushik Bhaumik (Asst. Prof JNU). The other speakers are Kamal Swaroop (Fimmaker) and Sandhini Poddar (Associate Curator, Asian Art, Guggenheim Museum).</p> Fri, 15 Aug 2014 00:37:13 +0000 KULWANT ROY - National Gallery of Modern Art - NGMA Mumbai - August 1st - September 7th Wed, 13 Aug 2014 22:47:21 +0000 Krishnarjun Bhattacharya, Shradha Jain, Vinit Nikumbh, Zuleikha Chaudhari, Mohini Dutta - KHOJ International Artists' Association - July 28th - September 4th <p>Of Games - II, the second iteration of the gaming residency at Khoj, takes forward Khoj's interest in interdisciplinary art practices.
