As a continuation of the project Networks & Neighborhoods we extended the dialogue around gender, space and mobility.
The project engages residents of the adjacent localities of Khirki and Hauz Rani, two urban villages in south Delhi. The long-term goal was to examine how art interventions can mobilize women from different backgrounds to create their own public spaces within the male-dominated space of the neighbourhood. It was a challenge to find project participants within a patriarchal culture where gender segregation is the informal norm and women in general have little public visibility/are restricted to their own private spheres.
In this phase we are also deploying mobile phone as a primary tool for documentation and space for creative practices.
