A famous book said : “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”, if you are in Bangkok the most meaningful way to do that would be to go see the DEFIANT ART exhibition on the curved wall of the 4th floor at BACC, you still have until 13th February 2022.
One of the basic human needs is to be heard, which is what the artists are voicing on behalf of the Burmese people here, in this exhibition curated by SEA junction.
Tell your friends about it, have conversations about the situation in Myanmar no matter what the history was told, the fact is people are losing their lives, literally.
If all you can do is share, do it, if you are an artist who wants to express this situation in your art form, do it, if you are a person like me who is just learning about these atrocities, learn and speak out, we ask for your attention, your support, your donations. Here is the foundation’s website:
There it is, I am not good writer and there is no need for background information and no literary sugar coating other than to say I am so glad that I met Dr. Rosalia Sciorlino the Director of SEA Junction and we thank her organization and her team for inviting us to watch the documentary THIS KIND OF LOVE.
As I am writing this, I am still processing the film courageously made by Jeanne Marie Hallacy to show a unique magnetic voice and journey of now Human Rights Minister for NUG (National Unity Government) Aung Myo Min in his ongoing fight for human rights. You can imagine how I felt right after watching the film, my inner voice was so loud I was speechless. I am writing this to let as many people know about what’s happening to your neighbors whether you are Thai or not.
And what’s going on and how it came to be, has been portrayed clearly and powerfully in the DEFIANT ART exhibition curated by Lattapol Jirapathomsakul and Rosalia Sciortino.
