Description

12 Aug 2016, Fri 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Lab, Block 43 Malan Road

The Southeast Asian region has been experiencing increasingly frequent events of transboundary haze for several decades. Much of this haze originates from Indonesia, mainly caused by fires related to traditional and commercial agricultural activities. While these activities have been credited for fuelling rapid development in Indonesia and the larger region, human and non-human communities around Southeast Asia have had to suffer its ill effects. This talk explores the concept of such pollution as a crime, both in terms of human and environmental rights. It also touches on the intricacies of local and regional politics that have permitted this ‘crime’ to continue unabated.

This Exhibition (de)Tour is part of the public programme of Amar Kanwar: The Sovereign Forest.
