German Season / Encounters #4 Pasar Seni / Market Share: ruangrupa meets Städelschule
Tobias Rehberger is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation. The recipient of the Golden Lion at the 53rd Venezia Biennale, he constantly crosses borders between art, design and architecture. Ade Darmawan is an Indonesian artist, curator as well as one of the founders and head of ruangrupa, an art collective that, among others, puts an emphasis on working in urban spaces.
Together, they have selected ten young artists from Städelschule, a contemporary fine arts academy in Frankfurt and ruangrupa, an artist initiative in Jakarta, who approached the realities of two market places in Tebet, Jakarta. The resulting works were created over the course of a few months in collaboration with local market vendors.
The participating artists in this project are Angga Cipta, Bertrand Flanet, Edi Winarni, Hanna-Maria Hammari, Julia Zabowska, Liesel Burisch, Maharani Mancanagara, Muhammad Fatchurofi, The Popo and Putri Ayu Lestari.
Join our artists' talk on Tuesday, 3 November 2015 at 3.30 pm. Two participating artists, Julia Zabowska and Angga Cipta, will share their experience during the working process of a collaboration project "Pasar Seni/Market Share".
Julia Zabowska is an anthropologist graduated from University of Copenhagen and currently studying fine art at Städelschule (Frankfurt). Her interest is in visual culture and design.
Angga Cipta is a member of ArtLab ruangrupa and an artist who uses illustration, mixed media, and installation in his works.
