A Conversation with Sanarth Banerjee
McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute
After getting a degree in biochemistry, Sarnath Banerjee received an MA in Image and Communication from Goldsmiths College, London. He has written graphic novels like Corridor, published by Penguin (India) and Vertige Graphics (France) in 2004, Barn Owl's Wondrous Capers, on the scandals of 18th century Calcutta by Penguin (India) and Denoel (France) in 2007 and The Harappa Files in 2011.
Banerjee was the shortlisted artist for the Abraaj Group Art Prize 2015 curated by Omar Kholief. Currently Banerjee lives in Berlin and writes a weekly column of visual commentary, which casts a sideways glance at the current politics of Europe from the point of view of the global south.
