The Roles of Southeast Asian Aesthetics through the Perspectives of Thai Women: Impacts and Influence on Aesthetics Perceptions in the 21st Century

The study on the roots of the Southeast Asian aesthetics not only focuses on the cultural roots of civilization in creativity but also the roles, identity and individuality of creators prior to the 1932 Siamese Revolution which have been passed on until nowadays. This leads to the consolidation of knowledge on Suvarnabhumi aesthetics which is interconnected with the global capitalism in our digital age through the eyes of women in the 21st century.


Between Movement and Stillness: Practices on Balancing Body and Mind

Adapted from the artwork of Sukumala Nithipataraahnan, the workshop will lead to the learning and understanding of connection between body movement and mind, the Southeast Asian elements-based dancing performance, and concepts of linkage between the spiritual world and the digital world, as well as stillness and rituals. The workshop will also raise questions about the roles of women in the modern age on the path of Theravada Buddhism. Moreover, it will enable the participants to learn as to how to make the concentration on our own breathing and body movement which can in turn be utilized in creating video and image making technique.

The Reflection of Social Changes during Colonisation Period in Thai Art

Focusing on the period between 1850 – 1930 in Thailand, or “Siam” at the time, when all the neighboring countries were gradually colonised by European nations and Siam were left in the middle as the buffer state, artworks in many forms and media were created to reflect the changes happening in the society. Studying these artifacts also lead to the better understanding of the interrelating relationship between the east and the west, especially the exchanging of knowledge, which eventually led to the revolution from monarchy to democracy in Thailand in 1935.


Repetition of Self: Meditative Practice and Interpretation

Developing from the video and performance by Vichaya Mukdamanee, the workshop will focus on how one is focusing on certain performative actions happening in daily life. The repetitive action in life is documented and then transformed into fragment or inspiration used in the artwork creation process. The participants can also learn about the basic concept of meditation that is the moment of mindfulness which one tries to continually keep in mind. The workshop also encourages the participants to interpret the concept of meditation, and merge the concept as part of everyday practice.
