Everyone’s A Critic - ...or silence?

Everyone’s A Critic - ...or silence?

The events of May 13, 1969 are reinterpreted here through literary responses. By exploring literature, academic articles, and archival material from multiple communities and generations of Malaysians, the online exhibition looks at the anxiety, alienation and self-censorship that followed and still surrounds this historical event. We review the exhibition.


Everyone's A Critic is jointly presented with CENDANA. For updates on Malaysian arts and culture, visit BASKL.
