The Indian partner organization is Majlis,
a centre for alternative culture and rights discourse in collaboration
with the Mohile Parikh Centre for Contemporary Culture (MPC3).
The beginning of Majlis lies in the
womens’ movements of the
1980s. The founders of Majlis are trained and honed by the euphoric
beginning of the feminist consciousness of that era. Since then Majlis
has grown in the most non-linear fashion - responding to concerns
of cultural practices and rights discourse, often surprising even
those within the organisation. Majlis has two centres: The Legal
resource centre and Cultural centre.
The Mohile Parikh Center (MPC), Bombay, is
one of the leading centers in India devoted to the Arts. Ever since
its inception in 1990, the Mohile Parikh Centre for the Visual Arts
(MPCVA) has functioned as an integral part of the National Center
for the Performing Arts (NCPA). In the year 2004, the Architecture
Forum of the MPC has expanded ist horizons to become the Mohile
Parikh Center for Contemporary Culture, or MPC3.
Curators of the “Bombay chapter” are
Madhusree Dutta and Flavia Agnes.
