»Examples to Follow! is a travelling exhibition spread across Galerie Max Mueller, Studio X, the Premchand Roychand Gallery and the lawns of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Project 88 and Gallery Maskara. Celebrating the sixtieth year of Indo-German friendship, art works related to climate change and sustainable living are showcased. One of the most arresting exhibits is Gudrun Widlock’s Adopted, about an agency that finds African godparents for Europeans estranged from their families. Adopted began as a conceptual project and later, in a strangely futuristic turn of events, became a reality.«
