26 May - 10 November 2024

The Postnormal Times MADANI Exhibition is a collaborative effort between the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the CPPFS. The audience will set off on an experiential and pedagogical journey exploring the ways our contemporary world is changing and what might lie ahead for us all. The aim of the exhibition is to spread awareness of the postnormal times we find ourselves in and demonstrate how Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim combined his political experience and desire for reform with the insights of futures studies and postnormal times theory to develop the MADANI approach – a principled and ethical framework that will help us navigate the tempestuous waters ahead towards brighter futures for all of Malaysia.

"To tackle the struggles of our times will take new ways of thinking. Where better to start than a place where we already have different ways of reasoning, seeing, and living."   YAB Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Prime Minister of Malaysia

To give new insight into the future of Malaysia, this exhibition features the works of six local Malaysian artists who have taken on and interpreted one of the six ethical drivers MADANI Malaysia: Sustainability, Care and Compassion, Respect, Innovation, Prosperity, and Trust (forming the English acronym SCRIPT).

Real world examples blend with creative presentations of potential future scenarios to illustrate that as the world changes, our notion of change itself is also changing. This exhibition provokes questions about recent issues and developments and offers a better way to navigate all our futures.
