Acquisitions Thailand 2010-2011
- Thai Independent Culture
The collection consists of a wide variety of expressions of youth culture, both from a political and non-political nature. It covers poetry, novels, short stories and other efforts of creative writing, and a wide range of different magazines, some of which have moved into more mainstream culture. There are also some examples of mainstream magazines (in the way they are produced) who target these 'alternative' youth. No matter how you call it: Independent culture (the definition varies), 'Do-It-Yourself' or DIY culture, in Thailand often known as 'handmade' (as in handmade books), the important connecting element is that of young people who take the initiative to take production matters in their own hands. The collection is mostly limited to print material though. The collection will be accessible by the end of 2011.
