This book on the Kasauli Art Centre, located at Ivy Lodge, Kasauli ? which functioned as a centre for the arts and was actively engaged in numerous art activities for a decade and a half, from 1976 to 1991 ? contextualizes and examines those events within the broader framework of the cultural scene in India, but through the particularity of what took place at Kasauli. Workshops on developments in the field of the visual arts, experiments in performance, seminars and discussions on arts and culture, the inception of the Journal of Arts & Ideas ? these are among the subjects covered in the book. The text is written in brief chapters and in several registers, and uses devices from fiction writing, including the mediating of time between an event and its recall. The book also contains contributions from artists and scholars who participated in the events held at Kasauli, and a detailed timeline of the events. It is richly illustrated with photographs and other images from those times.
