Forgetting Thailand (2022)
Is a part of exhibition "Nation, Narration, Narcosis" at Hamburger Bahnhof, curated by Anna-Catharina Gebbers with Charlotte Knaup and Rosalia Namsai Engchuan

Get your ticket for the show/exhibition on 30/04 at www.smb.museum/museen-einrichtungen/hamburger-bahnhof/veranstaltungen/detail/unthaitled-2022-04-30-110000-127812

Nation, Narration, Narcosis: Collecting Entanglements and Embodied Histories at Hamburger Bahnhof addresses art’s relationship to political protest, historical trauma and social narratives from the 19th century to the present. At a time when icebergs are melting faster than societies are reacting to this new reality, and the end of the world is more conceivable than the end of capitalism, the exhibition considers the climate and environment not only from an ecological standpoint but also from a social one.

In this context, Nation, Narration, Narcosis: Collecting Entanglements and Embodied Histories poses questions about the often brutal processes of nation-building, the role assigned to art in that process, and which hegemonic as well as alternative forms of community and accompanying narratives are conceivable and reflected in artworks. Based on Beuys’s concept of social sculpture, the exhibition reflects on the significance of “nation” contained in the name “National Gallery”, along with other concepts of connectedness, solidarity and individuality.

Wisanu Phu-artdun “Isan Ghost Rebellion” (whole day)

In 1901 against French colonization and Siamese imperialism, a group of Isan people established themselves as "Pu mee Boon" (Holyman), a prophet, in order to fight against the Siamese government and liberate Isan from these influences. They spreaded alternative prophecies in the form of chain letters, that said there will be a life-threatening catastrophe to come, and whoever would like to survive through it must receive a blessing from them. The form of this chain letter was eventually transformed into a set of folk oral music “Mor Lam”, which can be referred to as a traditional genre of Thai/Laos performance arts, in order to reach wider audiences across generations. The story about such tragedy is rarely told or narrated. As an Isan person myself, this story was unknown to me until a while ago, when the similar stories happened during the contemporary Thai anti-government protests: the story of rebellious citizens and carries of ancestral knowledge. How long will this last? When can we march for our voices without being hurt and killed again? Will our legend be sung for the future generations?

Wisanu Phu-artdun (วิษณุ ภูอาจดั้น) A Bangkok-based creative advertiser who has a background in advertising and marketing, Wisanu stepped his foot into the artistic field when he was pursuing his master's degree in Media Art and Design at Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany, and co-founded the collective “un.thai.tled”. His works are focusing on the relationship between humans and humans as well as humans and their surroundings. His expertise lies in multimedia, film, photography, new media, and digital platforms.

Raksa Seelapan’s “Cover-Up” (16:00-17:00)
With costume by Prapatsorn Sukkaset and music by Tanat Teeradakorn

Referencing Asian heritage, this performance tries to explore the relationship between humans and society and at some point question ourselves why/how we live the way we are. This work takes a critical view of how society shapes the individual and how individuals represent those aspects of society through existence. “As an individual, I think that we are so unique, but at some level, I also believe that we are all the same. We carry our own cultures, traditions, norms, religions, or even traumas and taboos.

Raksa Seelapan (รักษา สีลาพันธ์) “I move, dance, become and transform through arts”. She identifies herself as a performance artist who works through theatrical presentation and mostly focuses on movement in various forms. She graduated with a degree in Physical Theater from the Commedia School in Copenhagen, Denmark, and now lives in Hamburg Germany. Her work ranges from abstract concepts to concrete beings which try to authentically provoke yet have fun with the viewers.

Kantatach Kijtikhun & Tanat Teeradakorn’s “Weeping Earth: Darkage Fiddler“ (14:00-15:00)

For this duo performance, we attempt to create a new nonlinear dimension or an acoustic geopolitical scape with immersive cyber-chanting and gravity-free musical composition. The audio, shifting between Thai bowed string instrument “Saw Oo” and laptop sonic synthesis, juxtaposes the sounds between complex histories of anti-communism and workers’ strike, traditional references (such as Thai funeral rites songs or national anthem) and postmodern ones (from modern protests and cinematic SFX drops). It appropriates how to use soundscape for geospatial occupation, like the ones nation state has been practicing.

Kantatach Kijtikhun’s (กันตธัช กิจธิคุณ) work, influenced by the philosophy of nihilism, illustrates struggles of the mind personal as well as political. Graduated with a degree in photography in Berlin and music studies in Bangkok, he works as photographer, visual artist, musician and organizer. As one of the founders of the “Thai democratic people in Germany'' group, he is deeply concerned with the political situation in his home country, Thailand.

Tanat Teeradakorn (ธนัช ธีระดากร) (b. 1991, Bangkok, Thailand) his artistic and musical base practice explores the notion of history, identity as well as the topics around sub/pop/visual culture, local mythology, and impact of technology, Creating a narrative through sonic and visual composition seeking a new way and new possibility of looking at the relationship between society, technology, ourselves and history. Across mediums from sound performance, visual, audio, or installation. He often creates a situation where the audience becomes part of the work or participates. Recent projects, exhibitions, and performances include RootTech™, Bangkok CityCity Gallery. Latent Space, HetHem, Zaandam. MEGA-CRASH XPO 2562, at De Commune. Peach Score +DEDE at Treptow Ateliers, Berlin. Dance Non-Stop Mix at Cartel Artspace, Bangkok and Life/Distraction, Performance Lecture at BACC(Bangkok Art and Culture Centre)

Natthapong Samakkaew’s “Krung Thep Maha Nakhon” (whole day)

In February 2022, the Royal Society of Thailand declared the change of the capital city’s official name in English, from Bangkok to Krung Thep Maha Nakhon. They said both are acceptable, but the new one is preferable in bureaucratic usage. I asked myself whether this change would result in any changes to the sense of nation and the livelihood of its citizen. “The city of angels” is the meaning of Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, or in short, Krung Thep — what we’ve already been calling the city in Thai. I was glad to be back here and make art for the first time in Thailand. I spent one week drawing on red postcard-sized papers while walking down familiar roads and to other places with friends with no plan in mind.

Natthapong Samakkaew (ณัฐพงศ์ สมัครแก้ว) is a visual artist and graphic designer, born in Krabi/Thailand and currently based in Berlin. In 2018, he completed my BA in Illustration at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle Germany with the dissertation "Move Your Body" in which he drew people and movements in queer darkrooms and cruising spaces. His drawing practice focuses on visual representations of phenomenology, perception, observation and personal experience.

Curated by Sarnt Utamachote, the one-day intervention Forgetting Thailand takes inspiration from feminist theorist and filmmaker Trinh Min Ha’s 2015 film essay Forgetting Vietnam. The performative interventions, rooted in the ongoing research and practice of un.thai.tled members, attempt to decentralize or even forget narratives of the Nation and deconstruct the myth of “homeland” as omnipresent yet violent histories embodied by diaspora/queer positionalities and people in exile.

Der Titel der von Sarnt Utamachote kuratierten eintägigen Intervention zitiert den Filmessay Forgetting Vietnam (2015) der feministischen Theoretikerin und Filmemacherin Trinh Minh-Ha. Im Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin erprobt das Kollektiiv auf Basis der laufenden Forschung und Praxis der Mitglieder von un.thai.tled ein Dezentralisieren oder gar Vergessen der Narrative der Nation.Der Mythos „Heimat“ wird als allgegenwärtige und dennoch gewalttätige Geschichte dekonstruiert, die in unseren persönlichen Gemeinschaften, Körpern, Geschlechtern, und Erfahrungen reprä#unthaitled2022

Thank you everyone who came to our SİNEMA TRANSTOPIA | COMMON COLD | un.thai.tled Film Festival 2021 #commoncold #unthaitled2021 at bi'bak

11th Nov - 4rd Dec, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Throughout 9 events, we showed feature and short films from Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and diasporic perspectives in Germany. With all Q&As after the films, we complicated the notion of social inequality, migration and epistemicide in the context of Cold War Southeast Asia. Via "common feelings" in the region, we purposed new forms of collective memories, alternative story-telling beyond national and colonial frameworks. It has been FUN with you all.

With guests such as Kong Rithdee, Putthapong Cheamrattonyu (Thai Film Archive), Onur Agbaba, Najwa Ahmed, Fernanda Carrasco, Luan Caja, Raras Umaratih, Estelle Pandao Lassus, Jade Singkhorn Krüger, Thao Ho, Nguyen Phuong Thuy, Nguyen Phuong Thanh, Vo Trang, Phạm Ngọc Lân, Thùy-Hân Nguyễn-Chí, Wattanapume Laisuwanchai, Thanayuth Naayutthaya aka Eleven Finger, Nontawat Toma, Graiwoot Chulphongsathorn, Sisu Satrawaha, Mattie Do, Sopheap Chea (Bophana Audiovisual Center), Truong Minh Quý.

Thanks #SinemaTranstopia, and our funders Stiftung Nord-Süd-Brücken , Projektfonds Urbane Praxis, and Goethe-Institut Thailand for making this happen!

See you next year, if possible!
