BFM Night School at Ilham Gallery: Crisis Vulnerabilities

How do we affirm life in a world that's breaking down? How do we stay hopeful while politics, nature and the economy are falling apart? What role could ugly emotions - fear, pessimism, resignation, anxiety etc - play to refine our ideals?

ILHAM plays host to this live edition of BFM Night School which reflects on those questions and more to understand the uses and abuses of feelings amidst precarious times.

Inequality is widening and nuclear warfare is likelier than ever, intensifying fears as all sides evoke their insecurities for privilege and attention. Our era of digital hyper-connectivity has also amplified exclusion and inequality. Our political vocabulary is increasingly dominated by emotional wounds and appeals to injury.

Join us as we think through the ways we can grapple with the challenging present without losing our sense of curiosity and connection.

Panelists:

Diana Wong is a sociologist who has published extensively on gender justice, migration, labour, war and historical memory.

Diana Lea Baranovich is an Associate Professor at the Department Of Educational Psychology And Counselling in University Malaya.

Presented by: Ahmad Fuad Rahmat
