In this public panel discussion recorded at the Jim Thompson Art Center in Bangkok on November 28, 2012, Guggenheim UBS MAP curator, South and Southeast Asia, June Yap leads an absorbing debate around issues raised in her exhibition No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia. Experts Gridthiya Gaweewong, Apinan Poshyananda, Alexandra Munroe, Hammad Nasar, and Ray Langenbach examine some of the myriad ways in which the region has shaped and been shaped by historical and contemporary developments.
