Residency 2018 Period #2

English | Indonesia

Sakinah Alatas (Indonesia) and Katharina Duve (Germany)

Artist-in-Residence Program Period #2, 2018

From September to November 2018, Cemeti hosted two artists-in-residence, Katharina Duve (Hamburg, Germany) and Sakinah Alatas (Jakarta, Indonesia) for a three months period. Cemeti’s Artist-in-Residency Program Period #2 2018 (September-November) is a cooperation with Goethe-Institut Indonesia.

Cemeti Artist-in-Residence Program is a platform for artists with post-studio based practice, encouraging an open process of artistic research and knowledge exchange. The program is to support the participating artists in developing their critical perspectives on their own practice, and to connect them directly with local communities, build meaningful relationships, and through their work address key issues at stake in the local context and beyond. The residency will culminate in a final presentation in any form that relates to the artists’ research findings and artworks.
