In ‘Reshaping Art’, T. M. Krishna examines what art is and how we can harness its power to make ourselves and our communities open and sensitive.
Krishna is well known for his attempts to break Karnatik music out of its high-caste confines, the author takes us through a journey of understanding what art means to different groups of people and the ways in which we all create and enjoy it.
