Party Office is an anti-caste, antiracist, trans*feminist art & social space. It investigates the commons through intersectional enquiries, dialogues and celebrations towards critical future publics. Situated in Delhi, it also performs at satellite sites and as conceptual architecture. Party Office presents grants and support to those invested in sociocultural work, and is currently working towards documenta15, Kassel, 2022.
After Party Collective, formed by artist-curator duo Vidisha-Fadescha and Shaunak Mahbubani, acts in the intersections between curatorial and performance practices, energizing choreographies of community, agency, legality, and pleasure. Expanding the Party as a site for critical praxis they produce spaces of embodied thinking to create momentum towards affirmation of trans*, intersex, non-binary, gnc, and poly-gendered bodies. Selected projects in 2021 include, a showcase of video work “Some Dance to Remember, Some Dance to Forget” at SAIChicago, Trans* Futures Archive at ISCP NY, “Party at the End of Gender-Normativity” at Wienwoche, Vienna, and upcoming exhibition “Dance Trans* Revolution” at apexart, New York.
