All Thai School Exhibition

2016


In my sophomore year of college, I and group of my friends were disappointed with the politics and the education system and started to complain about them. Then realised that if we could not be ourselves even in the university’s campus and doing extra curriculum activities would not help as the seniority system had blocked our desire, why don’t we create our exhibition ourselves?

Then, we organised an exhibition under
the theme ‘Criticism of Thai Education’.


16 people worked on this project. They were around 18-24 years old. We used Santi Pracha Dhamma Library on Charoen Krung Road as the exhibition space.
The exhibitors were composed of an artist, a social activist, an owner of an overseas study agency, a teacher and those who did not identify themselves with any professions.

Their backgrounds were diverse. We recreated the space and turned the library into a school, where there were various classes, a class timetable and works of arts were shown along the way.


When walking in the exhibition, the attendees stand in the line and listen to a speech by the principal. The attendee will be divided into small groups and join the classes, which are role-playing activities for the artists such as an interactive class, Eg. How to destroy creativity, listen to a lecture about how to fail in life, take part in a group activity about exchanging social courses and privileges, playing a political chess game, take an art class to question on having dreams. The attendee can take an exam and vote for a perfect.
