One of South Asia’s most compelling artists, Jitish Kallat has built an immersive practice, ranging from ideas of time, recursion and historical recall, to deliberations on the cosmopolis and the intertwined spheres of ecology and cosmology. The curator of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in 2014, his work has been exhibited widely at museums and institutions worldwide. This specially commissioned monograph commemorates a retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, in 2017. Featuring an extensive interview with curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, this volume includes essays and conversations involving curators, art historians and scholars in the fields of social theory and science.

Natasha Ginwala is a curator and researcher, and writes on contemporary art and visual culture in various publications.
