Born in 1943 in Simla, Vivan Sundaram’s long career has given him opportunities to work in a range of mediums – painting, installation, assemblage, photography, digital media and film. In the 1970s his activism was notable; he was instrumental in the establishment of the Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust (Sahmat) and the Kasauli Art Centre, both organisations that brought together politically conscious artists, writers, activists and thinkers in the 1970s and beyond.
