Since its inception in 2011, Critical Collective has collaborated closely with institutions in India and abroad to create exhibitions and seminars on art. In order to take its activities to a large scale; Critical Collective created The website works towards building knowledge in the arts in India. This website is intended to all in the lacuna caused by the absence of publishing in the arts, a lack of reprints and a shortage of institutional infrastructure to support knowledge in the domain of the arts.

The website is based on the need for concerted editing and preservation of writing the visual arts in India. It is also designed to address different categories which have virtually no signi?cant writing at present, such lens based practices, video and photography. The Foundation was one of the initial sponsors of the initiative.
