As performance art started to open a new window in Bangkok’s art community around 1986, Singapore had Artists Village, and performance had become a new form of expression in Indonesia, the Philippines and so on, etc. As Chumpon points out that we cannot learn about performance art development in Thailand alone without looking at the development that sprung in the region, and how they inspired each other, which later on became a strong network of regional performance artists.
