This practice-based workshop led by Sarnath Banerjee will explore these questions, but through the form of fiction. Participants will work closely with the faculty to research and create graphic fiction around these issues.
Works developed as part of the workshop projects will be presented to the public through the online channels of the Kochi Biennale Foundation.
Sarnath Banerjee is a graphic fiction writer and artist based in Berlin. His book-length publications include Corridor (2004), The Barn Owl’s Wondrous Capers (2007), and most recently Doab Dil (2019). He has also shown widely around the globe, including at the Sao Paolo Biennale (2008), Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2014), the Sharjah Biennale (2017). Banerjee also co-founded the publishing house Phantomville, which publishes graphic non-fiction by bringing together reporters and comic book artists.
