Kleine Humboldt Galerie is proud to present Common Ground #3 – Where the Circles Intersect. The exhibition brings together the works of six artists who call different places on the Indian subcontinent their home – or one of many homes.


It thereby explores the concept of “common ground” as a space of shared knowledge and basis for common understanding. In their works, the artists deal with the universal topic of “home” and play with memories of everyday situations and familiar objects of domestic life. The artists investigate constructions of the private and of the home, of language and script as mediums of communication that create a sense of community.

The preceding two chapters of the exhibition series generated a first exchange by bringing together artists from Bangalore in Bombay and artists from Bombay in Bangalore. The third part of the series now culminates in Berlin where the “common ground” will further expand: geometrically speaking, the exhibition is searching for the intersection not only between the two artist circles, but also between them and the Berlin art circle.

The advent of the digital era, with its worldwide networks, has called for a rethinking of the spatial context of artworks and their presentation. How can contemporary art be described outside the construction of national art histories, and the dichotomy of centre and periphery? How can new relationships between the local and the global be understood in times of migrating artworks and artists? How can one look at art from a translocal perspective? These questions will be raised and examined in the exhibition and in the comprehensive accompanying programme.

With works by Yogesh Barve, Ragini Bhow, Nihaal Faizal, Oliver Husain, Poonam Jain and Tara Kelton.
