About the Seminar
Two rivers, two cities but an interconnected future. River ecologies have been cradles of civilization and some of the most vibrant cities in the world lie along them. Today as local interconnectivities become more global, contesting views of the river, predicated on technology and capital have emerged. Rivers are increasingly seen as mere water channels, or even real estate. New threats of climate change have complicated the challenge.
The Max Muller Bhavan was hosting a 2 day seminar in Delhi on the 11th and 12th of December 2010. The seminar is also first in a series of events leading upto a public art festival, co curated by Ravi Agarwal and Till Krause, which takes place simultaneously in Hamburg and Delhi in October/November 2011, on the theme of the ‘River.’
The seminar was conceived by Ravi Agarwal and organized by the Goethe Institute, New Delhi
