Globalthek – a personal and public platform



This is a personal and public platform, a portal, a brain child of Sunanda K Sanyal which was launched near about ten months ago. He explained all about in the home page of globalthek describing how he derived the term global-thek, after joining two words global and thek (thek is a Hindi word) what had become a term of globalthek. Also he explained the meaning of thek, adda etc. or relation with Kolkata’s cultural environment. Not only that, this website also contains major articles on art and artistic activities, interviews, web gallery for upcoming artists, contact, discussion, film, essay-review-reports, bulletin, blog etc. In his own words he said:

“One part of the site has my personal stuff: my essays and other writings, images, and blog; while the other part is open to friends, acquaintances, even strangers (who, once part of the thek, wouldn’t be strangers any more). Artists are invited to offer their images for display in the Gallery, along with their vitae and contact information. They can also advertise their exhibitions or other efforts in the Bulletin. All this is completely free of charge (though, if participation swells in the future, the site’s maintenance may require a nominal one-time uploading fee, just like people at a thek often chip in for tea or snacks). Anyparty interested in someone’s art should contact the artist directly, since I am not interested in financially profiting from such transactions (this policy will never change). Art writers and culture critics are welcome to contribute articles in the Essays/Reviews/Reports, and anyone is free to propose topics on the Discussion page for dialogs and debates. Finally, all are expected to provide feedback on the ongoing effort to upgrade and improve the site.”

Sunanda K Sanyal is an Associate Professor, Art History & Critical Studies, The institute of  Boston at Lesley University.
