CEMETI x TUHANTU adalah presentasi oleh kolektif desain TUHANTU, bertempat di ruang masuk Cemeti yang baru. Presentasi kali ini menandai puncak residensi TUHANTU selama tiga bulan di Cemeti.
As part of our current year-long programme Maintenance Works, Cemeti Institute for Art and Society invited the Netherlands based design duo Collective Works (Karin Mientjes and Peter Zuiderwijk) for a residency.
In 2015, KUNCI Cultural Studies Centre took part in a residency program at Para Site in Hong Kong, where they organised Klub Baca Selepas Kerja together with Indonesian migrant workers. In the framework of Maintenance Works, Cemeti invited KUNCI to present this project.
On Friday 24th and Saturday 25th February, we are organizing our first Maintenance Works Assembly, entitled Forms of Exchange: (Re)producing Residencies, the first in a series of Assemblies taking place throughout our current year-long programme Maintenance Works.
The notion of “self-design” has been a recurring theme in our conversations with TUHANTU, the graphic design cooperative that is working on Cemeti’s new visual identity.
As part of Maintenance Works 1st Draft: Proportions, we convened an editorial group to translate one of the sources of inspiration for our current Maintenance Works program: Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969!.
We launched this process with several initial “propositions” in Cemeti’s gallery and domestic spaces, consisting of art works and art practices.
