NON NATIVE NATIVE
NON NATIVE NATIVE (NNN) is a cultural platform which looks into the Asian creative landscape in the Netherlands through the lens of the outsiders from within. The platform serves as an alternative point of exchange for critical creative practitioners between the Asian and Dutch cultural landscape with the focus on contemporary visual culture. The initiative was formed in late 2018, and through a series of research and public activities, we aim to combine the contemporary work of Asian creatives with the local diaspora narratives, bringing to the surface a nuanced representation of Asian visibility in popular culture. We aim to construct an alternative speculation–or rather–impression on the world’s future, through critical reflection of Asian actors who are part of the global cultural landscape.
Non Native Native is co-founded by designers and curators: Belle Phromchanya, Darunee Terdtoontaveedej, and Honey Kraiwee, and operates in collaboration with diverse professionals to celebrate the art of reclaiming the unclaimed.
