"Curators in Residence: Curating Connections" grant scheme organised by KfW Stiftung in collaboration with DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Programme 

The Indian curator Zasha Colah (born 1982 in Mumbai, where she lives and works) often adopts collaborative and participatory approaches focusing on issues surrounding cross-cultural transfer, cultural autonomy and cultural heritage in an unstable socio-political context. 

In 2010, she teamed up with curator Sumesh Sharma to found the Mumbai-based Clark House Initiative, an independent space for projects and exhibitions dedicated to exploring new curatorial methods. Two years earlier, she had organised "blackrice", a communal project in the Indian state of Nagaland. With degrees in history of art from Oxford and in curating from London, Colah was curator at Mumbai's CSMVS Museum, formerly known as Prince of Wales Museum of Western India.
