Asian Bloomsbury Beyond the Frame

Come and find out how Bloomsbury, the bohemian hub of early twentieth-century moderns, was criss-crossed at its heart by the presence of India. South Asian artists, writers and publishers were familiar faces on its streets, amongst them M.J. Tambimuttu, editor of Poetry London, and novelist and art critic, Mulk Raj Anand, founding-father of the Indian novel in English. Join writers Elleke Boehmer, Romesh Gunesekera, Susheila Nasta and Sukhdev Sandhu to discover more about Asian Bloomsbury and how these early writers and artists engaged with British culture, influencing contemporary global visions of modernity.

Sunday 8 July 2012, 12.00, Southbank Centre, London
