Anwar visits Post-Normal Era Madani Exhibition

KUALA LUMPUR, May 26 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim visited the Post-Normal Era Madani Exhibition held at Berjaya Times Square today.

He arrived at 11am and spent an hour viewing the display featuring works by six local artists, which highlighted the main pillars of the Madani concept: Sustainability, Compassion, Respect, Creativity, Well-being, and Confidence.

Among the participating artists is sculptor Liu Cheng Hua, who showcases ‘Golden Shafts,’ a type of gold mining equipment made from locally sourced bamboo widely used in Raub, Pahang, in 2014.

Also exhibited are artworks titled ‘Human Needs Human’, ‘Panorama’, and ‘Aku Bukan Pendatang’, by Stephen Menon, a painter and printmaker known for his innovative techniques and thought-provoking works.

The exhibition was also attended by Deputy Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Datuk R. Ramanan, Centre for Postnormal Policy and Futures Studies (CPPFS) director Prof Ziauddin Sardar, and CPPFS assistant director Scott Jordan.

The exhibition, which runs from today until November 10, is a collaboration between the Prime Minister and CPPFS, with Berjaya Times Square as the programme’s sponsor and organiser.

Entry to the exhibition is free, aligning with its goal to raise awareness about the post-normal era experienced by the people and how Anwar seeks to combine his political experience and determination for reform, incorporating insights from post-normal theory and futures studies.

This effort aims to ensure that the Madani concept framework can be developed, thereby helping the nation navigate future challenges and achieve a brighter future.
