Behind the scene

The curatorial direction for the India Pavilion 2021 is to be able to take a long glance at IDEAS that have developed in our country in the thresholds between DESIGN and ECOLOGY across various domains/ and disciplines and covering WATER (OCEANthoughts/ AIR (BREATHEfreedom)/ ENERGY(POWERshower) / FOREST(TREErest)/ EARTH and brownfield (TERRAbride)

The India Pavilion is thus the STORY of India’s landmark ideas through various disciplines that bridge Design and Ecology, as a marker and a trajectory for the future, enabling a first time and first hand ECOLOGICAL-CULTURAL EDUCATION which maps a way FORWARD for an ecologically resilient India meeting the challenges of the present and future. From scientific research to architecture, textiles to cleaning brownfields, community movements to state-of-the-art manufacturing, products to garbage, water experiments to craft, and so on, seminal IDEAS slice across time and spatial domains to coalesce into a body of collective knowledge that is our blueprint going forward from 2021. It is hoped that this exhibition will be a catalyst to build vast ecosystems of collaborative design expertise that harnesses the power of Design to address the critical needs of India and the world today.
