The Raqs Me­dia Col­lec­tive, a Delhi-based trio com­pris­ing new-me­dia artists Mon­ica Narula, Jeebesh Bagchi and Shud­dhabrata Sengupta, rep­re­sents a unique flavour of in­ter­dis­ci­plinar­ity. Look­ing to ini­ti­ate new ways of en­gag­ing with ur­ban cul­ture and ‘re­al­i­ties’, their works pro­voke ques­tions about cap­i­tal­ism, mi­grant set­tle­ments, ur­ban de­sign and other (‘mar­ginal’) is­sues of ur­ban­ity. They cre­ate, cu­rate and com­ment, bring­ing to­gether, in new but mean­ing­ful ways, art prac­tice, the­ory and re­search. It is this plu­ral­ity of roles across a wide range of do­mains that makes their col­lec­tive a pi­o­neer in the con­tem­po­rary art scene in In­dia.
