The «art braille kanthari» charity auction was an art exhibition and charity auction, with special guest and auctioneer Stefan Puttaert, the director of Sotheby’s Zurich, and media personality Christine Maier.
the «art braille kanthari» project was based on Joseph Pisani’s three month kanthari trip through Southern India. The exhibition includes photographs, abstract paintings, video clips from the trip, and braille prose. Pisani’s visit to India marks the 71st country he’s visited. In Southern India, Pisani visited the kanthari campus, met the kanthari founders and the 24 students from this year’s seven month program, then visited seven projects founded by kanthari alumni throughout southern India. «art braille kanthari» documents the tireless work of the kanthari alumni, their social projects, and the people they have helped. The backstories of each of the auction lots, as well as a description of the 7 projects visited are listed below.
