“The Sahmat Collective” Art & Activism in India since 1989

November 28, 2013 @ 10:00 am - November 29, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week until January 1, 2014

In 1989, playwright, actor, and activist Safdar Hashmi was fatally attacked by political thugs while performing a street play outside of Delhi. His death led to the founding of Sahmat, a vital platform for contemporary art in India that defends freedom of expression and battles intolerance within the country’s often divisive political landscape. Through a mix of art and ephemera,The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India since 1989 uniquely situates two decades of contemporary Indian art within the political sphere while meditating on art’s capacity as a force for change.
