In cooperation with the façade gallery of Kule e.V., the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program has initiated a series of public art projects on the housing front of Auguststr. 10 in Berlin-Mitte. Subsequent to Martha Rosler and Josh Neufeld’s project in 2011, the Indian artist N S Harsha is showing a new, sculptural installation, conceived especially for this location.
N S Harsha is known around the globe for his paintings, drawings, and installations, as well as for numerous site-specific and local projects. Through a vocabulary of poetic-conceptual forms, Harsha marries political and social references to popular and traditional art forms. His detailed images depict microcosms of life, linking traditional and local elements, such as the portrayal of rituals, with images and topical issues faced by humanity today. These links offer a subtle and often humorous commentary on present times.
