Episode 5 Pop Culture with Note Pongsuang

 

On this podcast we talk about many different types of pop culture in Thailand and how that culture has changed over the last twenty years. We get this perspective from someone who has not only lived through it but became a part of Thailand’s cultural scene. Note gives us his perspective on music from Britpop to K-Pop. He waxes lyrical about the art scene from his days at Silapakorn University to comics to the state of the fine arts scene in Thailand today. He also provides us with an insight into his own work as promoter, DJ, graphic designer, writer, entrepreneur and artist. Just don’t mention the word “capitalist”.

 

“You start it from doing this party at (a) shit venue. One day you end up working in a museum, doing the art award for the biggest museum in Thailand. It is kinda weird in a way but it started from that dancefloor.”

Does such a think exist? If it does, what is it? And where does it come from? Is it static or does it change? And if it changes, then what remains? Let’s find out…

Censorship is nothing new to Thailand but censorship in Thai film has always been of a different more stringent sort. Many everyday depictions of daily life in Thailand never find their way onto the silver screen and we find out why. We trace the censorship of film back through the decades and see how successive governments have taken the moving image as a matter of grave importance.
