*The Nextbangalore Gatishil Space is an urban intervention that transforms a vacant plot into an inviting temporary public space, open to all. Nextbangalore is an initiative of MOD Institute engaged in developing future visions for the city through public participation.

We are proud that Bangalore was selected as one of 16 cities worldwide for the Weltstadt project, a recent initiative on informal and innovative city development.

The current exhibition documents local actors and discusses global trends. It will be shown both in the Nextbangalore Gatishil Space and in the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan.
