Event Description

Photo Exhibition “Last Stand for Pom Mahakam” by Jan Daga
Date: 16-22 January 2018
Time: 11AM- 7PM
Organizer: SEA Junction
Location: SEA Junction

“Last stand for Pom Mahakan" is a week-long photo exhibition to be held at SEA Junction on 16-22 January 2018 that is dedicated to the community of Fort Mahakan, a historical heritage site located in the center of the city of Bangkok. Mahakan Fort marks the entrance to the Royal City, also called Ratanakosin Island. Once, the city was encircled by a wall punctuated by 14 such forts and 16 gates and further protected by a canal, but today Mahakan Fort is one of only two such towers that remain from the original late 18th century walls. The area in between the mighty walls and the river, which has been home to more than 50 households over six generations, will be turned soon into an eco-tourism spot to complement the historic fort, which was built in the 1700s. After the park plan was delayed for over 20 years due to opposition from residents, in recent months the evictions and demolition of all the houses considered "not of historical interest" have been carried out and large parts of the community have been relocated. This exhibition is the result of the many hours spent by Italian photographer Jan Daga with the community documenting with his camera the ongoing transformation of a lively community into lawn for a future gentrified tourist attraction. A preview of selected photos can be seen at http://seajunction.org/gallery/glimpses-of-southeast-asia/people-mahakan-fort/ and athttp://www.jandaga.com/copia-di-stories
