► Fahmi Reza – Stu­dent Power

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Arts & Culture -

Back in 2009 Fahmi Reza started do­ing public lec­tures about the Univer­sity of Malaya stu­dent move­ment of the late ’60s to the late ’70s. While many of the lec­tures were done in pri­vate spa­ces, Fahmi’s main goal was to carry out the lec­tures in public uni­ver­si­ties, es­pe­cially in Univer­sity of Malaya – the birth­place of said stu­dent move­ment. This in­stal­la­tion fea­tures a time­line of his nu­mer­ous (failed) at­tempts at car­ry­ing out the lec­tures in public uni­ver­si­ties and news­pa­per clip­pings of stu­dent ac­tions back in the day. Apart from that, the in­stal­la­tion also fea­tures a replica of the iconic speaker’s cor­ner steps – a plat­form where stu­dents were free to ex­er­cise their free­dom of speech.
