Gayatri Sinha Walk-through on 24th October 2018

Gayatri Sinha held a detailed walk through of the exhibition ‘Envisioning Asia – Gandhi and Mao in the photographs of Walter Bosshard’ curated by Gayatri Sinha and Peter Pfrunder at KNMA Saket. Gayatri held the hour long walk-through of the special exhibition and spoke at length about the body of photographs shot by Swiss photojournalist Bosshard and his assignments to cover political figures and events of the 20th century, especially the years before World War II. She also described how in her curatorial endeavor along with Pfrunder, they have been able to situate world leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Mao Zedong, together in this exhibition. Highlighting that although both these towering figures were using completely different political strategies, but their goals were same – of political self-determination and independence, apart from both of them being men of charisma and wider connect with people. However, the photographs speak loudly of differences between their mannerisms and idiosyncrasies and that’s where the curatorial intent takes shape, as explained by Gayatri. The walk was amply attended by keen art lovers and by students of photography.
