Let's Panic!

Postby Phaethon » Fri Oct 28, 2011 3:27 am

There's an amusingly ill-timed exhibition on at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre which sees a huge banner hung from the building with "Let's Panic!" in English and เมือง จม น้ำ ('City sinks')

Seems insensitive to title it "Let's Panic!" at this precise moment :roll:

I am boggled is very insensitive; there are many people in dire straights. What on earth can they be exhibiting?

It's an exhibition by 14 artists on the impact of global warning:

Just the banner sends the wrong message. Still, it was fun decoding the jumbled Thai slogan.

Last month they had a display of traditional Thai fishing boats outside... at least they might have been useful.

Let's hope they won't need the boats.
