Call For Applications: Gender Bender 2019
21 May 2019
The first of its kind in India, Gender Bender is a festival that showcases new works of art around gender, “as a concept, discourse, construct, and as art itself”.
Starting out as a showcase of grantees 5 years ago, the joint project conceived by the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan and Sandbox Collective, has now evolved into an established space to evoke conversations about and contribute to the ever-evolving understanding of gender, and to help produce works that re-examine and re-imagine the concept.
The festival is inviting applications from individuals and artists who are creating new, original work around the ideas of gender and approaching the theme in a critical way. Contributions can take any form of expression across different media – from dance, drawing, photography to pottery, mixed media, mime, and everything in-between. Selected projects will be presented in Bangalore between August 29 and September 1, 2019.
Applications for Gender Bender 2019 have now been extended to May 31.
