CMAC – Centre for Media and Alternative Communication

CMAC works in the fields of culture, media, communication and design. Culture and media in India are undergoing a profound change. CMAC is in the process of exploring the various interfaces this involves – between art and technology, artists and the media, cultural production and dissemination in the internet age. Together with the arts, artists are changing too and so is performance space. Space and time today are no longer what they were. The media is no longer what it was and the forms of communication have changed and are changing drastically. CMAC has worked on these and related ideas for more than a decade, facilitating cultural production and communication through the various media available to us today. Women on Record is one of our projects on the visual and performing arts and their relationship to media and communication technologies.
