In the months of February, March and April, Delhi's changing weather will be experienced from the Machaan. Quiet actions, cacophonous conversations and a swell of gatherings will pass through the Machaan with the changing breeze. Atop its scaffoldings, telescopes will be crafted, masks will be worn, stories told and performances enacted.

Far From My Home:'Machaan'
By Murari Jha
The Machaan, part of Far from My Home by Murari Jha, is a space where multiple observations come together. You are invited to explore the structure, to listen to a multitude of soaring voices, to observe and share your observations of the landscape and skies of Delhi. The Machaan is situated on the back lawn at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi, and simultaneously at @farfrommyhome on Instagram. If you have observations of Delhi that you want to share from the Machaan, or for the Machaan, please tag the Instagram handle and use the hashtags #farfrommyhome #Machaan120hour #postime120hours
Far From My Home is realised within the framework of Five Million Incidents 2019-2020 conceived by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with Raqs Media Collective.
