Chapter 8 looks at public memorials and artworks from the decades of the 1990s and 2000s in a variety of media (painting, photography, installation and video) that challenge social amnesia of Thailand’s recent history of political violence. Though special attention is paid to public monuments and artworks that commemorate the traumatic events of October 1973 and October 1976, the chapter also discusses works addressing the more recent violence of 2010.

Keywords:   trauma art, political violence, social amnesia, October 1976
