18-22 June – Antariksa

Antariksa Antariksa

Researcher and co-founding member of KUNCI Cultural Studies Center in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Antariksa is the 2017 laureate of Global South(s) du Collège d’études mondiales/Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme fellowship, Paris, and currently Associate Fellow of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS)-Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore.

KUNCI Cultural Studies Center inhabits a precarious position of belonging to neither this nor that within existing disciplinary boundaries while aiming at expanding them. The collective’s membership is open and voluntary, and is so far based on an affinity to creative experimentation and speculative inquiry with focus on intersections between theory and practice. Since its founding in 1999 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, KUNCI has been deeply preoccupied with critical knowledge production and sharing through means of media publication, cross-disciplinary encounter, action-research, artistic intervention and vernacular education within and across community spaces.

On June 21th Antariska will participate in the symposium The Circulation of Indonesian Modern Art, at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The symposium is part of the public program around the exhibition  De Gebroeders Djaya: Revolusi in het Stedelijk’ (9 June – 26 August 2018).

His visit is planned in contact with the embassy of the Netherlands in Jakarta.
