Kala Bhavana, founded in 1919 in West Bengal by Rabindranath Tagore strove to develop a new pedagogic model different to that imposed by British colonial rule. It worked towards cultural renewal, bridged the gap between the arts and crafts, and integrated its teaching into everyday life and the local community. The chapter Corresponding With in India will explore this educational model in relation to the Bauhaus and the Seikatsu Kosei Kenkyusho and consider the implications for rethinking pedagogy today. For understanding contemporary practice, but more importantly as a way to evaluate current initiatives and reenergize a discussion of the relationship between education, culture, and society from an international perspective. The results will be incorporated into the exhibition planned for 2019 at HKW in Berlin and published in the online journal.
