Exploring the art of Tantra today
Contemporary artists in Asia and the West have been inspired by Tantra, interpreting it as a radical movement capable of challenging repressive attitudes towards gender, sex and politics.
This event explores the subject with a panel discussion featuring acclaimed artists Bharti Kher, Sutapa Biswas, Penny Slinger and Prafulla Mohanti.
This event is presented in partnership with Tantra: enlightenment to revolution at the British Museum, supported by the Bagri Foundation.
