Kanwar’s films and installations are multi-layered contemporary experiences connecting intimate personal histories with the wider politics of power, violence, sexuality and justice. Characterised by a distinctly lyrical approach to the social and political, Kanwar’s work has been presented in film festivals and museums. He has participated in documenta 11 and documenta 12, Kassel, Germany and is also the recipient of the first Edvard Munch Award for Contemporary Art, Norway.
