They Beat Your Father: Arin Rungjang in conversation with Dr June Yap

Description

Thai artist Arin Rungjang and Director of Curatorial, Programmes and Publications at the Singapore Art Museum, Dr June Yap, will discuss conditions in the nation’s post-colonial period of economic development and modernisation. Subject to precarious economic circumstances, many sought greener pastures abroad, where they also, unfortunately, encountered forms of discrimination. Drawing upon the experiences of the artist’s father, as a Thai migrant worker in Germany, Rungjang will connect familial histories with present-day observations.
