Budhaditya Chattopadhyay


Budhaditya Chattopadhyay is an Indian-born artist, researcher, writer and theorist. Chattopadhyay works with sound as his primary medium, often dealing with contemporary issues such as human intervention in the environment, urbanity and exile. Conceptually, Chattopadhyay’s work questions the materiality, site-specificity and object-hood of sound, and addresses the aspects of contingency, contemplation, mindfulness and transcendence inherent in listening. His artistic practice intends to shift the emphasis from object to situation, and from immersion to discourse in the realm of sound. Chattopadhyay has graduated from India’s national film school specializing in sound, completed a Master of Arts degree in new media/sound art at Aarhus University, and received a PhD in sound studies from Leiden University.
