Report on "No Limit Tokyo festival"
การเสวนาเล่าถึงประสบการณ์จากการไปเข้าร่วมเทศกาล "No Limit" ที่เมืองโตเกียว เมื่อวันที่ 11 - 17 กันยายน 2559 ที่ผ่านมา ซึ่งเทศกาล "No Limit" ครั้งนี้ถือเป็นการบุกเบิกการจัดงานแบบ......แบบที่ไม่สามารถหาคำจำกัดความถึงตัวเทศกาลได้!! หัวข้อเสวนาคือ ความแตกต่างระหว่าง underground art ในไทย กับของประเทศอื่นๆในเอเซีย, แนะนำเทศกาล "No Limit" ในทัศนะของผู้เสวนาว่าทำไม มันจึงสนุกจังและอะไรคือแนวคิด/ปรัชญาที่อยู่เบื้องหลังความสนุกและไร้คำจำกัดความเหล่านี้

The role of art is significantly changing. It is the time to rethink the fundamental principle of the relation between the arts – society before we give an account of the thing to the Arts. A lot of things are waiting for us: public-private, politically inspired, spectator-ship, participatory, monetary system… we might need the time and space that keep distance from The System for the purpose of primary idea.

The introduction of the underground event, NO LIMIT TOKYO in Tokyo. They provoked “all around Asia there are people doing as they please, making music, art, and mysterious spaces, saying we won’t be swept up with the dominant current of the world so easily, we’re gonna do the things we want to do in our own way in a growing underground cultural area. We can find places to sleep and food without hassle and to top it off, we can hang out and party with nolimit, even if the world is a total disaster, its nothing more than a fart for the Manuke cultural sphere”
