Stateless Rohingya…Running on Empty

Supported by the Asian Resource Foundation (ARF) and the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Myanmar Caucus (AIPMC), the exhibition, which took three years in the field, portrays the story of Rohingyas, an ethnic and religious minority from Myanmar, unknown to the world. The exhibition reveals deep and true story of the world most neglected population. Let’s experience the story of people who are estranged in their very own homeland.  For Rohingyas, life is an endless journey of struggles. They run from place to place, in search of the land they belong to but end up finding themselves running on emptiness.

Let’s discover the meaning of this endless journey. Let’s seek an answer for these questions:  who are the Rohingyas?  Why they have to flee their land?  Why they are not wanted? Where will they be recognized as human? And how could we respond to the problems faced by the Rohingya?

From March 27 – April 1, 2012, award-winning photographer Suthep Kritsanavarin will be exhibiting his work on the plight of the Rohingya at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, opposite MBK Mall in Siam Square.
