Budhaditya Chattopadhyay

Budhaditya Chattopadhyay is an Indian-born media artist, researcher, and writer, with a PhD in sound studies from Leiden University. Prior to his PhD, Chattopadhyay has graduated from the national film school of India specializing in sound, and received a Master of Arts degree in new media from Aarhus University, Denmark. Chattopadhyay’s work questions the materiality, site-specificity and objecthood of sound, and addresses the aspects of contingency, contemplation, mindfulness and transcendence inherent in listening. His artistic practice intends to shift the emphasis from object to situation and from immersion to discourse in the realm of sound and media art. Chattopadhyay has received numerous fellowships, residencies and international awards, and his works have been widely exhibited, performed or presented. Chattopadhyay has an extensive list of scholarly publications in the areas of contemporary media, cinema and sound studies in leading peer-reviewed journals. Website:

The audiovisual installation Resonating Field from the ongoing project Decomposing Landscape (2014 -) creates a discursive situation for critical as well as affective engagement with the environmentally and ecologically troubled landscape decaying under the pressure of economic development. The work has been developed through a meticulous collection of materials from various environmentally affected sites in extensive fieldworks supported by Prince Claus Fund, Amsterdam. By exhibiting on-going work, the project intends to sensitize the wider public consciousness about the devastating consequences of a profit-oriented development model for the humans and their habitual environments.

Lina Issa and Mayar Alexan

During their research residency for Dancing on the Edge with Satellietgroep at DCR Gueststudios in The Hague, theater practitioners Lina Issa and Mayar Alexan connected with local co-authors to develop a mutual understanding of shared identity inspired by the sea. The project focusses on the relationship between the human body and the sea, and the sea as a body of narratives, connecting Libanon, Syria and the Netherlands and beyond. How can we perceive within our local culture the global concept of drowning and being submerged in the memories we may share?
PROGRAM:The site-specific performance 'A Ticket to Atlantis' is presented during Dancing On The Edge Festival, 8-12 Nov at 16:30, on the beach with after talks.The traveling installation 'The Atantis Project - A Sea of Stories', from 8-18 Nov, shares the narratives collected during the research and aims at spreading them again. More about the traveling installation:
