Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities
The project is one of the highlights of the year of Germany in India, titled 'Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities'. Central to this program is a focus on sustainable urbanization and the challenges that both the countries face with areas such as urban planning, public transportation, sustainability, education and urban culture.

TO FOSTER a global exchange of ideas on urbanization in the light of technology, sociology and history, an exhibition presented by Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V. (ifa/Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations), organised by Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, and curated by Anh-Linh Ngo, ARCH+, Post Oil City – The History of India’s Future, and Cyberabad – Landscape of Surprise – Opportunities for India's Emerging Urbanisms, an exhibition by „Landscape of Surprise“, Peter Gotsch and Susanne Kohte, will be unveiled on Saturday the 11th of August, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at the Vidyaranya High School, “Green Gates”, opposite The Secretariat at Saifabad in Hyderabad.


The project is one of the highlights of the year of Germany in India, titled “Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities”. Central to this program is a focus on sustainable urbanization and the challenges that both the countries face with areas such as urban planning, public transportation, sustainability, education and urban culture.

To mark the opening of the exhibition, a public symposium will be held at the Vidyaranya High School on the 12th of August, covering discussions on three key areas - culture, climate and infrastructure, which add up to the discourse at the heart of the presentations. Students of the Vidranaya High School will also participate in follow-up workshops, one of which would be on urban explorations with photography.

The travelling exhibition is not focused on a single geographical context but tries to initiate a more global discourse. The symposium will be an avenue for experts, scholars, and critical thinkers of urbanism from various contexts to come together and address various questions.

Cities all around the world face historically unique transformations - from climate change to migration. Urban populations in emerging economies will double in the coming 30-40 years. Fast growing peripheries become the key sites of contemporary urbanisation. What does this historically unique and enormous growth mean and how can it be geared towards more sustainable urban futures?
