About Khōj

Khōj is a not-for-profit contemporary arts organisation based in New Delhi. Through international, on-site, off-site and often hyper-local programs and residencies, Khoj supports and incubates experimental and transdisciplinary creative practices that look at art and its various intersections with other disciplines such as gender, urbanisms, ecology and technology.  

The residency at Khōj provides time and space to artists to engage, respond and present their work in a historical socio-economic context, encouraging inclusivity, participation and artistic intervention in small but palpable ways. The residency acts as a platform for dialogue, supporting the development of personal artistic practices while building a network of interdisciplinary artists.

Residency Focus

The Khōj International Residency welcomes three international mid-career artists and one Indian artist onsite at the same time. The focus of this residency is to build a cohort of practitioners interested in the field of expanded craft, design and technology. Craft or crafting refers to the ways in which an object comes into form. Materiality, skill, repetition, tradition and historicity are core considerations in the process of crafting an object. Sharing histories with craft-based knowledge, design discourse articulates function and intention to objects, systems and environments. Technology – through the evolution of tools, machines and the digital – has played a significant role in the evolution of craft and design, making new contexts and transpiring new innovations. Through this residency, Khoj wishes to host critical artistic practices that situate the entanglement of craft and design in an ever-changing technological milieu.
