Vietnam’s current median age is just under 30. With half the country born in a period of economic growth and prosperity following the 1986 Renovation policy, the ‘Renovation Generation’ is experiencing a unique youth culture. Western culture and the digital revolution presents new forms of engagement with Vietnam’s traditional values. Consequently, a rift has emerged between the youth and their parents’ generation as the Renovation Generation continues to strive for engagement with the wider world.
Dina Litovsky’s new work explores this curious generation and its focus on personal freedoms of daily behavior, consumer goods and the entertainment industry.
Dina plans to return for a third trip to continue this ongoing project.
