We wake up to a new reality every morning. Chatters abound with social issues, from inequality to the climate crisis. The young and marginalised are fighting for their rights. And on social media, images gain a superpower of their own. They are the barometer for cultural change, the window to possible futures and the spark for a revolution.
What’s the role of a visual creator in this brave new world? Is it enough to create beautiful images? Can visual creators create a ripple that resonates beyond the creative industry? Can they be fearlessly inventive and positively disruptive? In other words, can they be #SuperCanggih?
At the forum, we cede the stage to four extraordinary visual creators who have shaken up their industry and the culture at large.
Xyza Cruz Bacani humanises migrant workers in Asian cities through her black-and-white photos. Nadirah Zakariya reframes the idea of womanhood with raw, personal and bracingly honest portraits. Tom Potisit uses fashion photography to bring awareness to unspoken issues in Thailand. Yaman Ibrahim makes it his mission to represent the Malaysian point of view in the photography scene.
What do they have to say about the power and the role of visual creators today? Hear the answers at this one-hour event. Then ask your questions. Expect lively debates and amazing images.
