Experiments with Truth: Gandhi and Images of Nonviolence



Taking the form of a reader, this fascinating book explores the resonance of Gandhi’s ethics of nonviolence in the visual arts. Texts range across influences on Gandhian philosophy and outgrowths from it: the words of famous peacemakers, religious texts that inspired Gandhi, newly written historical essays, and reports on nonviolent action. Images include Gandhi’s own iconography; portraits of the Mahatma’s forebears and followers; photojournalism of nonviolent struggles in Africa, India, and the Americas; and artworks that speak to violence or issue from an inner space of peace. Experiments with Truth counterpoints poetry and ideas with mid-20th-century abstraction, sacred art from various traditions, and contemporary video and installations.
