48 Degrees Celcius- Public.Art.Ecology, Contemporary Arts Festival

banner for the forty eight degree celcius contemporary arts festival in public space

About the Festival

48°C features installations spread across eight heritage public spaces in the city that are along the metro route. Besides the installations, there are ecology tours and talks, cycle rallies, performances, conversations, street plays and film screenings.

(Taken from the official website)
48°C Public.Art.Ecology, a combined initiative of Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan and GTZ, is an experiment set within the capital metropolitan city of Delhi. The ambition of this project is to interrogate the teetering ecology of the city through the prism of contem-porary art. Through a number of art interventions in various public spaces around Delhi, the festival attempts to draw a diverse public into the world of this critical imaginary.

By any score, Delhi qualifies as one amongst the world’s most dynamic and complex urban settings in contemporary times. Like most other urban centers of this country and of the south Asian region, the city of Delhi is characterized by multi-layered historicity and multiple urbanisms that get expressed in varying conditions within its cultural and physical fabric.  

48°Celsius is a reference to the exigencies of global warming, which can be felt in Delhi’s continuously escalating summer temperatures, and also to its interconnectedness to a city in overdrive. Delhi’s feverish building activity and rising sensex form a glossy veneer to the crumbling ecology  beneath.

When

12 to 21 December, 2008

Where

Public Spaces in the NCR region of Delhi like Roshanara, Connaught Place, Jantar Mantar, kashmere Gate, Chandni Chowk, Ramlila Ground, Barakhamba and Mandi House.

The festival seeks to promote the Metro Rail as a mode of transport for all Delhi citizens. All sites are planned within a 5 minute walk or a 10 minute rickshaw ride from the respective Metro stations, thus forming  a vibrant festival route.

About the Festival

(Taken from the official website)
Delhi International Arts Festival, the first multi-activity annual cultural festival that made its debut in December 2007 has already shown signs of influencing the cultural landscape of the city of Delhi. This Festival which gave to Delhi a rich artistic skyline for almost three weeks, comprising Visual and performing arts, films, literature, cuisine etc., is designed to involve and sensitize the local community to the multi-dimensional facets of the various art forms from all over the world, by providing a common ground for interaction between the artists and the mass audience. The Delhi International Arts Festival is therefore important and necessary for the audience, the artist and for the community in general, driven as it is with its sustained cultural energy.
