Non Native Native Embassy presents a series of design research events from a curatorial approach on social and political climates from  Non-Western perspectives. The focus of 2019 is on East and Southeast Asia. Our public programme aims to be an alternative point of exchange for critical practitioners, cultural researchers, and institutions who are associated with contemporary visual culture in Asia, particularly in China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. 

We aim to construct an alternative speculation–or rather–impression on the world’s future, through critical reflection of Asian actors who are part of the global cultural landscape.

NNN Embassy is initiated by Belle Phromchanya & Darunee Terdtoontaveedej which operates in collaboration with Honey Kraiwee (curator), Prof. Irene Stengs (researcher),  studio150 (designer), Leiden University College The Hague, and International Convention of Asia Scholars.

We always have our eyes and ears open for collaboration and submission of relevant projects, articles, events, and other various forms of exchange.
