Urban Spaces – Mapping Bangalore
MOD Institute very much welcome the German filmmakers Miriam Jakobs & Gerhard Schick to the urban residency in Bengaluru.
What is the color of Bangalore and how does it sound? What is the idea of this city? How many faces does Bangalore have? What does the concept of change mean for Bangalore? Are there still secret spots in the city?
These are some of the questions, which documentary filmmakers and bangaloREsidents@MOD Institute & Suchitra Film Society Miriam Jakobs and Gerhard Schick asked 10 young Bangalorean filmmakers in their workshop “Urban Spaces – Mapping Bangalore”
By using the medium film to explore and describe contemporary urban developments and their historic genesis, Jakobs and Schick want to contribute to the debate about the nature of the city in the 21st century and the sustainability of urban concepts in the future.
While in Bangalore, they would like to record and register the city on film, taking close looks at its special topography, structure and history, and meet the protagonists of the rapid changes this metropolis is undergoing. They would love to collaborate with partners and students from Bangalore and are very much looking forward to get to know their personal views of the urban environment. Finally, they are very curious about images, sounds and movements the city will offer and suggest.
We work independently and in collaboration with an extended network of individuals and organisations to visualise urban processes and challenges so as to inform participation and intervention.
