140 Years B.Grimm : Corporation with a conscience

Letters and postcards dating back to the 1880s adorn the walls of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, ordered in a chronological pathway leading to an exhibition by 15 contemporary Thai artists. The past and the present are two facets highlighted in this show celebrating the 140th anniversary of B.Grimm, a multinational conglomerate whose history is closely tied to that of Thailand’s development in the modern age. On Sunday, HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn presided over the opening of “In The Kingdom, 140th Anniversary of B.Grimm”, which also traces the history of Thailand-Germany relations over the years through postal materials, from stamps to correspondence to private letters.
