Anish Kapoor is internationally renowned for his art works and installations. He is a British sculptor of Indian origin. Born in Mumbai, Kapoor has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s where he moved to study art, first at the Hornsey College of Art and later at the Chelsea School of Art and Design. Kapoor’s pieces are frequently simple, curved forms, usually monochromatic and brightly coloured. Most often, the intention is to engage the viewer, producing awe through their size and simple beauty, evoking mystery through the works’ dark cavities, tactility through their inviting surfaces, and fascination through their reflective facades.

Homi K. Bhabha is the Anne F. Rothernberg Professor of the Humanities and Director of the Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard University. He is one of the most important figures in contemporary post-colonial studies, and has coined a number of the field’s neologisms and key concepts, such as hybridity, mimicry, difference, ambivalence. Such terms describe ways in which colonised peoples have resisted the power of the coloniser, according to Bhabha’s theory.
