Talk: Die Grenzen des INDERNETs

For the festival closing, Prasanna Oommen talks to Ralph Tharayil, Manoj Kurian and Costanza Coletti about personal experiences and developments in the “glocal” art and creative scene. The four cultural creators reflect and discuss the concept of INDERNET and illuminate the event title from a critical viewpoint with fresh perspectives for the future. (Language: German)

Prasanna Oommen is a presenter, host, communications consultant and author and works with her team in the cross-cutting areas of culture, cultural education, diversity, digitization and political communication in NRW and Germany-wide. Prasanna is an active member and former board member of the Neuen Deutschen Medienmacher*innen (New German Media Professionals) and spent four decades working as a performing artist and dance teacher.

Ralph Tharayil, born in Switzerland, develops concepts and texts for audio formats and performances and writes prose and poetry for which he has received several awards, most recently a workshop scholarship from the Literary Colloquium Berlin and the Alfred Döblin Scholarship. In the current season he is a scholarship holder at the Institute for Digital Drama at the National Theatre Mannheim. His debut novel will be published next spring by Voland & Quist in the Edition Azur. Ralph lives in Berlin. (Photo: Sergen Yener)

Manoj Kurian is an independent creative developing design and communication concepts for brand and community building. After living and working in India, Malaysia, Egypt and Switzerland today he is based back in his hometown Köln. As the founder of Masala Movement and curator of INDERNET he aims to create platforms for transcultural identities, empowering creatives at the intersection of art, culture and technology.

Costanza Coletti is an illustrator and graphic designer from Rome. For the past ten years she has lived in Germany, Austria and Mexico practising Kundalini Yoga intensively. Costanza considers meditation her creative engine: her creations arise spontaneously through meditative experiences and adventures in the space of silence. This intuitive creativity flows both in her personal creations and commissioned works. She is an integral part of INDERNET by realising the annual key visuals since 2018. (Photo: Gerardo Ozuna)
