Raqs Media Collective

Artists, media practitioners, curators, researchers, editors and catalysts of cultural processes

Raqs Media Collective

Raqs Media Collective (Monica Narula (born 1969), Jeebesh Bagchi (born 1965), Shuddhabrata Sengupta (born 1968)) has been variously described as artists, media practitioners, curators, researchers, editors and catalysts of cultural processes. Their work, which has been exhibited widely in major international spaces and events, locates them squarely along the intersections of contemporary art, historical enquiry, philosophical speculation, research and theory - often taking the form of installations, online and offline media objects, performances and encounters. They live and work in Delhi, based at Sarai, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, an initiative they co-founded in 2000. They are members of the editorial collective of the Sarai Reader series.
