No Niin and Mavelinadu Collective at Editorial Tables: Reciprocal Hospitalities

Pre-recorded and exhibited at The Showroom, London from 25 January–18 March 2023

NO NIIN Magazine founders and editors Elham Rahmati and Vidha Saumya give an introduction to their magazine and welcome their guest from Mumbai, Ajinkya Dekhane and Shrujana Niranjani Shridhar from Mavelinadu Collective. The collective talks about the process of founding and running Mavelinadu, a publication house and cultural platform that publishes the work of marginalised caste creators digitally, due to launch their first print publication in mid-2023.

Our public programme Rehearsing Hospitalities culminates this spring with a series of collaborations in London, Oslo and New York. Building on relationships cultivated over the last four years, the final edition co-hosts a series of exhibitions, fellowships, and public programmes. The Rehearsing Hospitalities 2023 programme is organised in collaboration with The Showroom (London), UKS (Unge Kunstneres Samfund / Young Artists’ Society) (Oslo), Vera List Center for Art and Politics (New York), Finnish Cultural Institute in New York and Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland.

The online programme, live-streams, and other information will be posted here. You can browse materials from current and previous editions below.

Now available for download.

Rehearsing Hospitalities Companion 4, published in October 2021, is the fourth in a series of readers published by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Archive Books, which accompany Rehearsing Hospitalities.
