Program Description:

The Summer Program “Impressions 2.0” is a continuation of what was started in the summer of 2017. With a group of 12 people from across India we travelled to Leh and 8 other sites around which has historical, social and cultural value, documenting, recording and experiencing Ladakh. We experienced the place and printed a zine called “What about Ladakh?”
in 2018, we are diving deeper into Leh, not looking it objectively only as a “beautiful place”, but rather trying to understand what are the issues of this “beautiful place”. What are the forgotten stories of Leh, which are buried
under veils of modernism and beautification?
We plan to dwell into bazars, homes, shops, monasteries and mosques to reveal what was Leh? Our quest to find Leh will lead us to numerous oral stories and material memories. The childhood memory of a 70-year-old playing in Leh Bazar or letter from a long forgotten relative are important stories which we will seek. We plan to create stories around “Found Objects” or “Fabricate
Objects” to tell a story. The participants will be encouraged to go out and meet numerous people in Leh, collect stories and objects which will be stitched together to create artworks. The final output of the Summer program is planned to be in forms of printed documents like Zines, video recordings, sound, installations and public performance-based artworks.
