The event unveils with a discussion on the anthology by Hazirah Mohamed, Gwee Li Sui and Subramaniam Kannappan.

FORUM: Our Poetry: Giving Meaning to Poetics & Politics

With panelists Gwee Li Sui, Annaliza Bakri, Ramchander and Zhou Hao, the forum aims to unravel the role of poetry in today’s social and cultural imagination, where poetics and politics have been encapsulated, blended or even relegated. It will be moderated by Dr Azhar Ibrahim.

Film Screening – “The Art of Looking” by John Berger @ STPI, 17 May, 7pm

“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sun set. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.” – John Berger

Realised as a portrait in works and collaborations, this creative documentary takes a different approach to biography, with Berger leading in his favourite role of the storyteller.

Admission is free.

A poor miller gets tricked by the Devil and accidentally sells his daughter for a bit of gold. But Satan can’t take her because she’s too pure and has wept on her hands.
