MAIN EXHIBITION l Documenting as Method : Photography in Southeast Asia
Curator: Zhuang Wubin


Our understanding of photography in Southeast Asia is inflicted by the reductive binary of photography versus art, which morphs into the other binary of straight photographers versus artists who use photography. Documenting as Method: Photography in Southeast Asia proposes a renewed focus on the process of documenting as a productive means to move beyond these reductive binaries, which have resulted in the amnesia of many practitioners from this region, at least since the 1950s.

Featuring works created from 1958 to the present moment, the 13 artists from Southeast Asia selected here approach documenting as method in three overlapping ways: documenting as looking and thinking; documenting as cataloguing; documenting as world-making. In parallel and diverging ways, they use photography as an embodied and embedded medium to experience realities or to create fantasies.

MAIN EXHIBITION l YOUNG ASEAN EYES+

The compiling of the photographic works focusing on young emergent artists. The collaborative project from both Thai and International photographic related Universities has been initiated to aesthetically express the ideas as well as point of view through photographic language. Moreover, the festival itself is a vital platform for young emerging ASEAN artists, which enables them to develop their potentiality as well as their body of work. The academic upshot of photographic study in South East Asia would also be reflected. A wide range of diversity according to visual culture in our region would enhance.
