Copy-Paste at Sombat Permpoon Gallery Examines the Thai Education System
Monchai Pitayawaraporn with The Foundation of Art Education
Sombat Permpoon Gallery is currently featuring an exhibition by seven local artists titled “Copy-Paste”. The art exhibition explores the problems in Thailand’s education system, through the expressions of the artists who have all experienced the education system in roles as both students and teachers.
“Copy-Paste” refers to the Thai education culture where learning is centred on memorising from text books and following instructions from teachers. Students are not encouraged to be independent and creative, and critical thinking while discovering one’s individual strengths are not commonly promoted. Through the exhibition, the seven artists use art to relay their experiences in Thai schools and create a dialogue with their audiences about whether they experienced the same thing.
