Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows

Workshop with Prem Krishnamurthy

Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows is a workshop guided by Prem Krishnamurthy, Artistic Director of FRONT 2022 triennial, during which he together with the participants will reflect on art as a therapeutic process and tool for transformation and healing.

Prem Krishnamurthy, Artistic Director of FRONT International 2022, Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, facilitates a multimodal workshop at the Gropius Bau – a participatory reflection on art and transformation at different scales. This experimental format emerges out of the curatorial process and approach for the triennial. Introducing key readings and references alongside projects by a selection of FRONT 2022 artists, the workshop uses writing, music, movement, and interchange to open up polyvocal ways of working in and on the world. The workshop is held in conversation with Zippora Elders, the Gropius Bau’s chief curator.



The Gropius Bau is one of Europe’s most-important exhibition venues. With its acclaimed contemporary and archaeological exhibitions, the Gropius Bau has consistently opened up new realms of experience and established its international reputation.

In view of its eventful history and the variety of institutions that have been active here over the years, the Gropius Bau is organised as an open framework for addressing a broad variety of artistic modes of thinking and their social implications. Through active collaboration with contemporary artists involved the programme, creative processes are revealed, new perspectives opened up and the possibilities of the institution reflected.
