Dhaka Art Summit

4-8 February 2016 | Dhaka, Bangladesh

“Not as far as it seems” Safina Radio Project: Dhaka Art Summit

 With the subtitle, “Not as far as it seems,” the Dhaka edition of Safina Radio Project took questions of belonging and home as a departure, seeking to explore common grounds within historical contexts, providing a cross section of origins and their interpretation, to the practices and work on show at the summit.

Pre-programming and commissioned pieces provided a broader cultural context for Dhaka, through a series of literature, architecture, art and music content, with the aim of bringing to the fore the rich cultural undercurrents of one of Asia’s most complex cities, drawing listeners closer to Dhaka as a centre for cultural discourse.
