Dear friends,
We warmly invite you to discuss the mantra of BIENNALE JOGJA EQUATOR#4 INDONESIA-BRAZIL on:

Wednesday, 21 December 2016 | 19.00 hrs

@ Cemeti - Institute for Art and Society,
Jl. D.I. Panjaitan 41, Yogyakarta

We are happy to host the second socialisasi event of BIENNALE JOGJA EQUATOR#4 INDONESIA-BRAZIL. With the opening of the Biennale 300 days away, the aim of this event is to find the Biennal’s “mantra”, to introduce the working team, to explain the general situation and challenges faced by the Biennale, to share a report about the first visit to Brazil and preperations for the Biennale. There will be an open disscusion with the audience to find out what spirit should be taken and carried out by this Biennale, to collectively elaborate on “ the mantra”.  Or, as  Pius Sigit Kuncoro, curator of the Biennale writes: The first step is made.The quest is in Brazil. But “the mantra” has not been found yet.

Invited speakers for this event are: Pius Sigit Kuncoro, kurator BIENNALE JOGJA EQUATOR#4 INDONESIA-BRAZIL


We also want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and presence during the Bring Your Broom event last Tuesday, where we the new Cemeti team, took the helm, a new board was instated and we celebrated the launch of our new platform; Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society. The evening included a cleansing ceremony by Mbah Gondo, a collective sweeping of the space, followed by a feminist playlist by DJ Barb and Ken!

We are currently directing our full attention to our upcoming year-long programme Maintenance Works, set to launch on 20th January 2017 ((please save the date!)). We will be closed to the public for a weeks’ holiday break from 24 December 2016 to 2 January 2017 (for some personal maintenance) and will come back to what we hope will be a dynamic, collective and care-filled year.

We hope to see you for the SOCIALISASI BIENNALE JOGJA EQUATOR #4 at Cemeti this Wedesday, 21 December, 19.00 hrs, and in the new year...

Salam manis / warm wishes,
Agni, Alec, Dimaz, Linda, Sanne, Sarono, Wahyu (Cemeti team)
