Looking back at the City

An exhibition of illustrations in the inimitable style of Bangalore artist Paul Fernandes, ‘Bangalore Swinging in the ‘70s’, will be inaugurated on April 23, 6.30 pm at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan. 

The exhibition will be on display from April 24 to May 7, 12.30 pm to 6.30 pm. 

His book ‘Bangalore Swinging in the ‘70s’ is a collector’s item and a source of entertaining nostalgia.

Other views of Bangalore and how it has morphed in the last few decades will enhance the evening. 

There will also be urbanist/activist/creative entrepreneur and architect Naresh Narasimhan’s ascerbic observations on the city, a photo feature by Shibu Arakkal on his dream home in Bangalore, followed by a sound/­video/voice-based rendition of ‘Swinging Through the ‘70s’ by Sandeep Madhavan and Nirmala Govindarajan along with Paul Fernandes. 

Verena Gerlach, graphic designer and resident at Jaaga will make a presentation on book design and Prashasti Rastogi, director, GBO on The German Book Office.
