Kink and consent in the bedroom - Nidhi Gupta
Sunday Guardian - 9th Nov 2013
Every time I see someone reading E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey on the metro, I cringe. Not only because it is a trashy piece of literature, but also because it makes me wonder how one can read paragraph after paragraph describing explicit sexual acts without feeling at least a little squeamish in place as public as a commuter train.

Contrary to Mumbai, which prides itself on its cosmopolitanism, Delhi moves at a very Indian pace. Politics has long been its defining trait. Bribe-pocketing apparatchiks, party hacks, journalists and foreign diplomats make up some of its most visible constituencies.

Las narrativas visuales trazadas por los artistas seleccionados están estructuradas alrededor de los espacios habitables de una casa.

The Skeleton Key – Janice Pariat
Time Out- 13 -20 Nov-2008
The human body has been described in such varied terms that one wonders if everyone’s talking about the same thing. It’s been called a miraculous biological entity, mere clothing for the soul and a physical encumbrance that hinders a human being’s spiritual freedom. It’s been viewed as a site of cultural and historical conflict, as in writer Toni Morrison’s work, where the bodies of her black characters bear the weight of racism and house stories of untold grievances. The body has of course also been at the centre of debates about gender and sexuality.
