Artist-in-residence
Pazifik - Leipzig

In collaboration with LIA (Leipzig International Art Programme) the Goethe-Institute offers artists from Southeast Asia a three-month residency at the Art and Culture Centre Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei. At the beginning of the 20th century the Baumwollspinnerei (cotton mill) was the site of Europe’s largest processing centre for cotton, today it houses the cultural centre for one of the most exciting places for the production and exhibition of contemporary art and culture in Europe.

Harit Srikhao

Harit Srikhao © Harit Srikhao Harit Srikhao, born 1995, lives and works in Bangkok. He started taking photos when he was 13 years old. In 2012 he produced his first series "Red Dream", referring to the military crackdown in Thailand in 2010. He got a BA in photography and applied art at King Mongkut’s Instutute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Bangkok, Thailand and graduated in 2019 with MA in photography and visual design at Nuova Accademia Di Belle Arti (NABA), Milano, Italy.

Srikhao continually creates works in photo essay style, lately containing elements of documentary, fiction and fashion. He plans to start a new series in Leipzig exploring art and club scenes, under an idea of ‘the variety of youth culture’.

This plan is driven by his experiences during the "Wave-Gothic-Treffen" he visited in 2019 as well as by his fascination for dance culture and alternative fashion styles of underground and queer scenes as a matter of self-expression that can be even a weapon for liberation and fighting against dictatorship and the radical conservative.
