    The Future isn't now

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 29/08/2019

    » A term I keep encountering is "The Future". You see it on billboards everywhere. Stadiums, department stores, condos, supermarkets, restaurants, theatres, whatever. They eschew the current autos and mobile phones and computers. Space rockets are only a generation or two away.

    Family forever

    Life, Alongkorn Parivudhiphongs, Published on 23/11/2018

    » A workaholic husband who just got laid off. A wife whose direct-sale career is soaring. Two teens devoting their time to friends and mobile phones. Here is the recipe for a broken home, and an ordinary-yet-spicy plot for Still On My Mind The Musical from director Takolkiat Viravan.

    A triumph, with cleanliness and clarity

    Life, Published on 29/05/2019

    » In an already thriving music scene which is only growing in scope and performance standards season by season, the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra is indeed doing very well to continue to attract sizeable audiences for its main symphonic repertoire series, as demonstrated by the impressive recent turnout for "Crown Imperial For His Majesty" at the Thailand Cultural Centre last month.

    Saint and sensibility

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 16/05/2019

    » A Christian fable or a Marxist allegory? A magical-realist myth or a political cry against neoliberalism (or feudalism, which produces the same catastrophe anyway)?

    Tintin in Thailand

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 20/07/2018

    » As part of the opening of the Bangkok Biennial (the grassroots art festival created by anonymous artists to counter the other two grand biennials coming up this year), ARTIST+RUN gallery will be launching its latest exhibition, "POOL", by Berlin-based Thai-English artist Tintin Cooper tomorrow, 6-9pm.

    Kawaii in Krungthep

    B Magazine, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 04/02/2018

    » Nowadays, you'd be hard pressed to walk five steps without overhearing someone gushing about their favourite BNK48 idol, or humming the band's indelible earworm Koisuru Fortune Cookie. The all-girl group has emerged as the pop sensation of the moment in Thailand.

    Pulling it all together

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 21/07/2017

    » What I learned from years of backpacking is that there's no single pattern of development. Every country I've been to has had its unique history, which is why the prospect of globalisation is incongruous and why mother countries couldn't hold on to their colonies.

    Smuggling Thai culture by film

    Life, Karnjana Karnjanatawe, Published on 23/06/2017

    » A group of Chinese fans of Thai actress Davika Hoorne shouted her nickname -- "Mai! Mai!" -- as she slowly walked out from the gate at the arrivals hall of Shanghai International Airport. They had prepared bouquets of colourful flowers and a large bunch of 999 red roses for the admired star of Phi Mak Phrakanong and 20 Mai U-Turn Wai Huai Jai Return (Suddenly Twenty).

    Unseen and not heard in the city

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 04/05/2016

    » The massive space on the seventh floor of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is now filled with a series of grainy and greyish photographs. Viewers should be warned that the experience there can be rather disorientating; not only are the photos random, they seem to have been arranged almost impulsively. Entitled "Omnivoyeur And Electrical Walks Bangkok", these photographs by Miti Ruangkritya only make up one part of the show, which is only complete when sounds by German sound artist Christina Kubisch are added.
