Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal, an eastern state of India, is always buzzing with political activity – whether it is election-related rallies, protest movements or film screenings with socio-political commentaries. The city is full of political art extensively found around educational campuses. The walls of prominent universities such as Presidency University, an institute which is about 200 years old, are adorned with creative representations of political opinions of artists and students, ranging from ideas of revolution to conflict and feminism. While some of the art has been lost, few still stay.
