Artistic creations that reflect tangible and progressive political statements are what make the Kochi-Muziris Biennale remarkable and pertinent, according to Zoya Hasan, noted academic, author, and political scientist.

The works of young artists, in particular, are very clear on the political doctrines they support, she pointed out. “Biennale is a lifetime experience. The specialty of the fifth edition of the Biennale is that it is a perfect combination of different mediums and techniques, besides the regional, national and global artworks. Stunning venues like Aspinwall House suit the Biennale well. The ambiance here is natural and aesthetic,” said Hasan after going around watching the show at Aspinwall House.

A team of 65 students and faculty from the Mysuru Wadiyar Centre for Architecture too visited the Biennale. The creative artworks and the historic venues proved really beneficial for the architecture students and provided them with a memorable experience.

A group of 80 students from the Pune Symbiosis Architecture School and 40 architecture students of the Thamarassery Avani Institute of Design too visited the Biennale along with their teachers on Saturday, said a press release.
