Latiff Mohidin: Pago Pago (1960 - 1969)
Latiff Mohidin: Pago Pago (1960-1969) traces a formative period in the artist’s practice during the 1960s as he journeyed across Europe and Southeast Asia. The phrase in its title, “Pago Pago,” was coined by the artist to evoke the consciousness that emerged through these travels. A way of thinking and working that sought to challenge the dominance of Western modernism at the time, Pago Pago led Latiff Mohidin to explore a syncretic approach to form in his art, and enter dialogues with other avant-garde thinkers in Southeast Asia.

we will have been young
we will have been young is a contemporary visual-anthropological photography exhibition by 12 emerging Southeast Asian photographers examining the fragility of youth and the ambiguity and transience of the future. This body of work was developed over the span of 12 months through a photography masterclass programme facilitated by German photographers, Jörg Brüggemann and Tobias Kruse, of the Ostkreuz Photographers’ Agency (Berlin) at the OBSCURA Festival of Photography between 2016 and 2017.
