Indian, Established 1992

In 1992, Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula, and Shuddhabrata Sengupta formed the Raqs Media Collective and have been collaborating to produce smart, poignant works—including multimedia installations, individual sculptures, online projects, and performances—through which they critically examine identity, urban development, modernization, and forms of power. In addition to their socially engaged art, they also curate, research, educate, and advocate. “The Raqs Media Collective enjoys playing a plurality of roles, often appearing as artists, occasionally as curators, sometimes as philosophical agent provocateurs,” they write. Their work is founded on the concept of “raqs,” the state of kinetic contemplation achieved by Whirling Dervishes. This is reflected in Lost New Shoes (2005), a multimedia installation centered around a pile of 100 pairs on new shoes—metonyms for the human beings who might have worn them and their precarious journeys through life
