Text of the call over a dark square.

Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA) is an initiative of Khoj International Artists’ Association and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan for young curators from South Asia. It is a fully funded fellowship programme in the field of curatorial practices relevant to South Asia in the visual arts. The programme aims to develop a diversity of perspectives on the medium of the exhibition and to provide a structured and an experimental inquiry into the possibilities of curatorial practice today.

Khoj and Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan are now calling for applications from early and mid-career curators from South Asia to apply for the 6th edition of the CISA programme, (re)imagined this year as a month-long, in-situ research residency at Khoj, New Delhi, India, 15 September – 15 October 2024, followed by a showcase in 2025.

The CISA residency will offer five curators from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Bhutan, Afghanistan or Iran, the opportunity to establish contacts and build networks with cultural practitioners, researchers, academics from India, South Asia and beyond.

The residency at Khoj will have two phases.

  • Phase I (15 September – 15 October): Research, Mentoring and Project Development Phase
  • Phase II (March or April 2025): Outcome Showcase

Khoj and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan will cover travel to and from New Delhi for both phases of the fellowship, a modest per diem for living expenses and travel will be provided. Each fellow will receive a showcase grant for the second phase (up to 1 lakh Rupees per person), subject to the approval of the proposals by the jury.
