Philip speaks at the NMV’s annual lecture series for the third year in a row, and the fourth time in total. This year’s talk will draw from the new chapters in the 2nd edition of Very Thai, focusing on the emergence of popular culture becoming a legitimate form of Thainess known as ‘Thai Thai’, and the exploration of everyday practical solutions being recognized as ‘Vernacular Design’.
