one of the more striking pieces in Chalo India was an artist's conception of transforming one of the most crowded parts of Bombay into a canal-ridden sort of new Venice. there were diagrams and illustrations and then a catalogue of the actual eviction notices he sent to real residents of the neighborhood and their angry and confused correspondence back to him. i found myself amused by it but then troubled. is this what countries like India and China are learning as art? glorified pranks? there's a lot of history, mistrust and discontent in India and i'd hate to see 100 Banksys replace a new age of modern art that could be more carefully cultivated.
