Arijit Bhattacharyya (b. 1994, India) is an artist and independent curator currently living and working in Weimar, Germany. His practice revolves around contentious narratives of resistance through social engagements, design interventions, large murals and lecture-performances. His artistic discourse is deeply rooted in the dissecting trajectories of socio-political history and its implications in cultural practices. As a curator, he is invested in artistic negotiations that investigate methods of social disobedience. He holds a master's degree in Fine Arts from the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and also holds another master's degree in Visual Art from the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda.
Arijit has been part of exhibitions and curatorial projects from the Röda Sten Konsthall Göteborg Biennial (GIBCA Extended), Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Index Berlin, Arts for the Working Class, Goethe Institut Thailand, Serendipity Arts Festival, Khoj International Artists Association, Photo Kathamndu, Oyoun, Interflugs, Haus Der Statistik to name a few.
