Shuddhabrata Sengupta, 1991-2005, India, 60 min.

Shuddhabrata Sengupta is a media-maker, writer, and one of the co-
founders of the Raqs Media Collective, a group of artists working in 
new and old media, installations, video, sound, photography and text 
based in Delhi, India. Founded in 1991, their hybridized practice is 
both rooted in the geography of Delhi and the nomadism of the web. 
They are also the co-founders of the Sarai New Media Lab which serves 

as their studio, hosts workshops, and maintains www.sarai.net, an 
extensive web site containing essays, discussion groups, and 
interactive projects investigating the role of media in our 
increasingly cosmopolitan world. Raqs has exhibited around the globe, 

including the 50th Venice Biennale and Documenta 11. Sengupta will 
give a multi-media presentation on his work with Raqs and Sarai, 
including MEDIA CITY, PUBLICS AND PRACTICES IN THE HISTORY OF THE 
PRESENT, and GARAGE, among others. (www.raqsmediacollective.net)
