T M Krishna and Suraj Yengde in conversation
MAP launches its theme of Inclusion & Diversity with a conversation between vocalist, writer and activist T M Krishna and leading scholar and author Suraj Yengde.
The session explores the patterns of privilege and exclusion that shape access to cultural art forms and pursuits, raising questions of the ethical and representational issues implicit in art that reflects a hierarchical society.
It also looks at the shifting relationships between classical, folk and popular arts, and the ability of the cultural space to function as a site of activism and dialogue.
