Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence, April - September 2012
School of Business and Management
Ranjit Kandalgaonkar is a Mumbai-based artist, whose work is mainly concerned with cities and themes of urbanisation. Kandalgaonkar was awarded the Leverhulme residency to work on an experimental ethnography in collaboration with Dr Amit Rai, Senior Lecturer in New Media and Communication, and Dr Sadhvi Dar, Lecturer in Corporate Social Responsibility / business ethics, both in the School of Business and Management. Rai, Dar and Kandalgaonkar researched East End street markets and how markets can be rendered sites for social practices that ascribe (de-)value to objects and artefacts. This interdisciplinary research integrated digital mediums, film, ethnographic observation and photography.
