Indo German Urban Mela 2012

The Mela is part of a 15-month celebration of the 60 years of India-German relations. The intent is to create a cross-cultural bridge between India and Germany; not to bring German culture and transplant it here.

The centrepiece of the year of Germany in India is the "Indo-German Urban Mela", a set of modern multi-purpose pavilions, designed especially for the year of Germany in India by renowned German artist Markus Heinsdorff. The concept behind the "Indo-German Urban Mela" combines design elements from both countries with state-of-the-art textile technology, thereby creating a symbiosis of art, architecture and technology.

When: June 22- July 1, 2012 | 10am- 10pm

Where: Palace Grounds

Entry free
