Arts Issue Issue 2019


Bharti Kher is by far one of the most relevant and important artists of our time. As she gets ready with her show, the first of its kind for her in India, we learn more about her life, her art and her thought process.

Simultaneously we speak to artists Pushpamala, Nikhil Chopra, Neha Choksi and Sajan Mani who express through performance an art-form that is so powerful and unconventional that it not only challenges the artist but makes the audience view art with a whole new perspective. 

Over the years, Rohit Chawla has photographed silent yet extremely powerful portraits; he shares his thoughts on what goes on to capture a moment from flying away. The Book Thief announced him as a literary force and Mark Zusak’s sequel, Bridge of Clay has taken 13 years but was definitely worth the wait. Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar talks about her next, Gully Boy, one of the most anticipated films of the year. And Vir Das gets candid with his one-liners. 

All in all we are excited about 2019, as we at Platform are getting ready to contribute beyond print. We will unravel and disclose as and when the door is ready to open. Till then enjoy the read…
