A Race Into Time

Artist Stephen Vince and his Bhopal Enigma sculpture

A remarkable sculpture not only visually speaking but for having taken part in last year’s Olympic protest rally opposing Dow’s sponsorship.

The Bhopal Enigma has now been photographed, or filmed, in many interesting and unusual places: protest rallies, outside Parliament, and even INSIDE the London Assembly building.

M.F. Hussain, Bhopal

M.F. Hussain’s ‘Bhopal’ is to head up a forthcoming sale Indian and Islamic Art on October 8th sale at Bonhams on London’s New Bond Street

M.F. Hussain, Indian artist, and film director, who died in 2011, was one of the most celebrated and internationally recognized Indian artists of the 20th century.

He became well know in the Indian Modernist movement of the 1940’s and largely painted in a modified Cubist style.

'Bhopal' is about to be sold at Bonhams, in London, and ArtDaily.org say that: “Just as Pablo Picasso’s passion and outrage towards the Spanish Civil War had inspired him to create ‘Guernica’ (1937), ‘Bhopal’ was the result of Hussain’s horror at the long-lasting effects of the leak.”

The Power of Activist/ Subversive Art

Two very powerful images designed to draw attention to the intransigence of the US authorities when it comes to holding their own multinational corporations to account for their actions in foreign (usually poorer) countries.

The contrast between the way BP was held to account, for the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and the way Dow/ Union Carbide remain on the run from criminal charges in Bhopal is particularly stark.

Please circulate these images as that is where their power lies.
