The Indian artist/curator group Raqs Media Collective (Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta) has been appointed the chief curator for the 11th Shanghai Biennale, under the title Why Not Ask Again? Manoeuvres, Disputations and Stories. The phrase comes from the group’s reading of Indian New Cinema Movement pioneer Ritwik Ghatak’s film Jukti Takko Aar Gappo (Arguments, Counter-Arguments and Stories,1974).
The Biennale, which takes place at Shanghai’s Power Station of Art (PSA), will open on 11 November 2016.
