In May 2022, Haffendi Anuar participated in the group exhibition titled With Whom We Mutually Communicate? curated by Mengtong Zhang at the Copeland Gallery in London, UK.
The exhibition questioned how the public sphere is transformed through individual artistic approaches and intimate conversations they generate. As Kant addressed, “how much, and how correctly, would we think if we did not think, as it were, in common with others, with whom we mutually communicate?”. Through collecting the reflection of each artist on “the good life”, “a moment”, and “love” – be their concerns personal or universal – the event marks the starting point of long-term dialogue on the potentiality of queering the institutions through relational events.
