Guggenheim Bilbao, Avenida Abandoibarra, 2

The film installation “O Horizon“, an important work depicting the Visva Bharati School in Santiniketan (West Bengal, India), founded by Nobel Prize-winning writer, educator and social reformer Rabindranath Tagore in 1921. In leading modern India towards independence and cultural transformation, Tagore anticipated some of the key issues of our global present.

Also exhibited in this space is a selection of works on paper by the artist Vidya Sagar (b. 1938; d. 2016), father of Anjalika Sagar, and collaborator in various films by The Otolith Group, to whom “O Horizon” is dedicated. Sagar was part of a generation who received the influence of Tagore’s school and Santiniketan’s spirit amid the radical cultural transformations in 1960s India. He was one of the most notable examples of Visva Bharati’s transversal culture, according to which all artistic languages communicate with one another. Sagar’s Tantric abstractions use sensuous outlines and delicate pastel hues to generate moments of visual musicality that reinterpret the patterns of Indian iconographies resonating throughout the allusive poetics of “O Horizon.
