Bangkok calling – changing the game
Exhibition | Workshop | Symposium
1 – 10 July 2020
Supported by the Italian Embassy and Chulalongkorn University
COVID-19. As health pandemic and economic calamity of global inhuman capitalism -whether expected or not- is a fact which synchopated the third millennium’s future scenario at any societal level. Our anthropological evolution is at a c-turn. The planet is self-regulating and safe, we are not. In the very now I see the current dramatic turbulence as one more historic evidence that humankind loops in a perpetual self-destructive pattern, and another chance to learn how to survive to ourselves. COVID-19 shot into the skin of our society and consciousness like an alarm clock buzzing out of the blue in our hears; what’s going on, and why? How long have we been sleeping or in a coma induced by accessible consumeristic illusions? I do my math while you do yours, but we are all surfing the same big wave of uncertainties. It’s action time for seeking authentic betterment focusing on the needs, rather than on the wants; it’s time to re-introduce a genome of Renaissance humanism in the” DNA sequence” of technological progress; it’s the time of the braves to educate - empathize – work– share and live for real. It’s time to change the game.
CAPOLAVORI project was a genuine cultural intuition three years ago, and now is a must-do for its believers. It was planned for next July in Bangkok, and in the order of the quantic unfortunate now postponed to Q1 2021. In the meantime, we keep working on it with the utmost motivation, within devotion and belief.
Thank you for joining us
