Join us for an exhibition that traces the development of artist Htein Lin and other prominent artists' performance art within Myanmar's dynamic political and cultural landscape from 1997 to 2008. Experience this unique journey through video presentations featuring the works of ten established artists carefully curated for the exhibition from December 15 to January 6.

The exhibition's grand opening will be held at the Goethe-Institut Myanmar on December 15, commencing at 3:30 pm. The agenda for the event includes an opening program, followed by live performances from renowned artists such as Htein Lin, Phyu Mon, Nyo Win Maung, and San Oo. On December 21, artists Htein Lin and Phyu Mon will engage in a thoughtful discussion on the theme "My Body is My Tool."

We invite you to immerse yourself in a welcoming environment with meals and snacks. The Chronicles of Change Exhibition is organized by Goethe-Institut Myanmar and thoughtfully curated by Coming From Kalaw.
