Abstract:
The recent international hype of contemporary art from India implies the notion of a local art world in transition of becoming global: contemporary art from India ranks high at international auctions; it exhibits worldwide and gains full media coverage, inside and outside India.
While globalisation has formed a new geography of contemporary art, medialisation has led to its altered perception. At the example of India’s contemporary art world, the thesis tackles the question of the medialisation of contemporary art since the emergence of the Internet: How is the boom of contemporary art from India perceived by the art world in India? How do individual and collective art world players react on the sudden global attention and high marketability of contemporary art from India? What are the dynamics of the media, which communicate the recent changes?
The research thus examines the dynamics of contemporary art in India, its global art market and the role of media since Indian liberalization in the 1990s. Art world players like artists, gallerists, art critics and collectors are central research “subjects” to study how they have altered their actions in relation to the recent transitions within their field. Aiming to reconstruct the transitions of the art world in India since the 1990s, the research implies methods of qualitative research. To examine the personal perceptions, observations and reactions on India’s contemporary art world, qualitative interviews with selected artists, gallerists, collectors, auction house and museum directors as well as art critics will be conducted to explore the research field. Qualitative content analyses of selected media are applied to study the change of mediated public communication on the recent art boom. Their foci lie textually on market-induced notions of contemporary art from India and formally on social media formats.
