SPACE / SCAPE Project: reproduction of social constructions in public spaces

Public talks by Nuraini Juliastuti (Director) and Ferdiansyah Thajib (Research Coordinator)

SPACE / SCAPE examines the socio-cultural dynamics that emerge in the surroundings of the Alun-Alun-place in Yogyakarta. The project includes artistic experiments as a means to understand the performative aspects of the Alun-Alun-place as a public space. With this project, they also want to illustrate examples of how local, cultural, economic and political characteristics of society develop, using an interdisciplinary approach through creative interpretations and interventions in the public space.

Kunci Cultural Studies Center (KCSC) was established in October 1999 as a non-profit organisation in Yogyakarta. The aim of the institution is to strengthen the relationship between culture, humanities and social sciences, and to analyse contemporary social and cultural phenomena in Indonesia. KCSC organises interdisciplinary events in the intersection between cultural studies, urban and popular culture and art criticism. Kunci Cultural Studies Center is a private initiative that collaborates actively with a number of institutions and the public. The institution is interested in examining how cultural movements are produced, and believe in the importance of knowledge production and archiving, in order to promote new approaches to education in society outside of the established education institutions.
