Exploring the art of Tantra today

Contemporary artists in Asia and the West have been inspired by Tantra, interpreting it as a radical movement capable of challenging repressive attitudes towards gender, sex and politics. This online discussion explores the subject with acclaimed artists Bharti Kher, Sutapa Biswas, Penny Slinger and Prafulla Mohanti. The panel will be moderated by Rebecca Heald from the Royal College of Art, curator of 'Thinking Tantra' at the Drawing Room Gallery in London (2016).
