In the past decade India's metropolises have been caught in the grip of an enormous push towards globalisation. This abrupt inernationalisation of capital, consumption, and media has also effected changes in the contexts of Indian contemporary art. Global television stations, commercials, the Internet, video and computer games, are becoming important points of refernce. The relationships betweeen world and nation, between individual and community, between politics, economy, and culture are being redefined. The artists participating in Capital & Karma confront these changes with varying strategies, transferring in this way the media surfaces of "Indian" and "Western" elements into a globalised context of symbols. Essays by Indian and international authors address the conflicting effects of the new flows of capital in art, popular culture, politics, and urban development, as well as in Indian cinema and other forms of mass media. Capital & Karma constitutes the largest presentation of contemporary Indian art and culture ever to be displayed in the German-speaking realm. The artists: Atul Dodiya, Subodh Gupta, Ranbir Kaleka, Sonia Khurana, Shantanu Lodh, Surendran Nair, Baiju Parthan, Anandajit Ray, Dayanita Singh, Vivan Sundaram
