Speaking of fake products, one would probably think of brand name bags and pirated DVDs. A walk around "Pharmacide Arts & Counterfeit Goods", an exhibition which runs until May 26 at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) will probably change your perception of what's real and what's not, as well as explain why buying fakes is not the economical and harmless choice that we often believe it is. With popular fake products ranging from the usual branded goods that we often see on sidewalks, such as luxury brands and plush toys with trademarks, to items that make you wonder "why on Earth would anyone want to fake that?", the exhibition reveals the truth about counterfeit goods that have seeped into our daily life, some by our own choice and some by mistake. The Cultural and Cooperation Section of the French embassy, in collaboration with the Department of Intellectual Property, Tilleke & Gibbins Museum of Counterfeit Goods and BACC, aim to promote and enhance awareness and exposure about fake goods, including hazardous bogus medicines. The exhibition digs deeper into the dark side of this business and creates public sensitivity about the risks of choosing phoney goods. Pharmacide Arts & Counterfeit Goods runs until May 26 on the 8th floor of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
