Description:

Neuware - INDIEN ALS INBEGRIFF DER EXTREME Von buddhistischen Mönchen bis Bollywood, vom Taj Mahal bis zur heiligen Kuh, von intensiven Farben und Gerüchen bis zum krassen Nebeneinander von Arm und Reich. Indien scheidet die Geister. Aber ganz gleich, aus welchem Blickwinkel man darauf schaut: Indien fasziniert und lässt kaum jemanden kalt. Der Kunstmarkt, stets und allerorten ein Barometer für wirtschaftliche Entwicklungen, veranschaulicht auch in Indien nicht nur künstlerische, sondern gesamtgesellschaftliche Strömungen: Mit dem Aufschwung entwickelte sich zunächst ein regelrechter Hype um die zeitgenössische Kunst, der durch die globale Finanzkrise genauso abrupt unterbrochen wurde, wie er sich zuvor explosionsartig ausgebreitet hatte. Inzwischen hat sich der Kunstmarkt des Subkontinents konsolidiert, und man setzt heute bei den international agierenden Galerien mehr auf Inhalte als auf Rekordergebnisse. Das mag unter anderem daran liegen, dass sich die Kunstszene Indiens offensichtlich nur sehr bedingt fuhr spekulative Transaktionen am Markt eignet. Die künstlerischen Ausdrucksformen und Inhalte sind für einen Hype zu politisch und daher zu wenig 'harmlos'. Man sucht vergebens die Werke einer L'art pour l'art, die sich überall auf dem Globus geschmeidig in die luxuriösen Chefetagen einfügen, ohne nachdenklich zu stimmen oder Anstoß zu erregen. Direkt und persönlich ist auch die Auswahl der Autoren, Julia Ritterskamp und Gérard Goodrow, die auf eine Reise durch das faszinierende, lebendige Geschehen der indischen Kunstszene einladen. Das Buch stellt sowohl etablierte als auch Nachwuchskünstler aus Indien vor und berücksichtigt darüber hinaus indisch-stämmige Künstler, die im Ausland leben. Die Themen reichen von der Politik bis zum Genfer, vom Kunstmarkt bis zum Fotojournalismus, von der Abstraktion bis zu gezielten Rückgriffen auf traditionelle Techniken. Subodh Gupta, Jitish Kallat und Mithu Sen gehören ebenso dazu wie Pablo Bartholomew, Hema Upadhyay und Anish Kapoor. Gastbeiträge von namhaften Kennern der indischen Kunstszene - Desmond Lazaro, Peter Nagy und Ranjana Steinrücke - bereichern diese Publikation, die erstmals einen so umfassenden Einblick in die zeitgenössische indische Kunst gibt. 273 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.

Synopsis: India is the epitome of extremes. From Buddhist monks to Bollywood, from the Taj Mahal to the holy cow, from luscious colours and intense odours to the harsh juxtaposition of wealth and poverty. Opinions regarding India differ sharply, but regardless of which side you take: India fascinates and leaves hardly anyone cold. The contemporary art scene in India is still quite young and is developing as fast as the subcontinent is booming. The scene is less established than in other Asian countries such as China, Japan or Korea - but it is without partiality and less defined by the constant retrospective view onto traditional art historical structures. On the contrary, the artists make direct and personal references to what they experience and what moves them within their own surroundings. Equally direct and personal is the authors' perspective as they invite the reader on a journey through this fascinating and fast moving art scene. Both Gerard A. Goodrow and Julia Ritterskamp have longstanding connections within the contemporary art world in Western Europe, but have also sought and established contact with Indian artists and other protagonists of the Indian art scene long before the boom of the so-called "emerging markets". The book presents both established and emerging artists from India, as well as those with Indian heritage abroad. The topics range from politics to gender, from the art market to photojournalism, from abstraction to the conscious drawing on traditional techniques. The publication is enhanced by contributions from well-known experts on the Indian art scene, including Peter Nagy, Ranjana Steinrucke, Ranjit Hoskote and Desmond Lazaro.
