Have a chat at Artist Talk: Taring Padi on Saturday, 4th of March

Taring Padi is a community of underground artists formed during the days of social upheaval, following the fall of Suharto in 1998. This group deploys art as a tool of information to highlight social, political, and economic concerns faced by the Indonesian populace. A voice for marginalised communities, Taring Padi creates art to both educate and provide a platform to raise issues faced by these communities.

Two of Taring Padi’s representatives, Mohamad Yusuf and Yunanto Setio Broto will be at ILHAM Gallery to talk about the collective’s history and its development over the years. The talk will be divided in three parts:

1. A screening of a 30-minute film: “Art, Activism and Rock ‘n Roll” which tells the story of Taring Padi’s early development and their activities when they were based at the Indonesian Art Institution’s ex- campus in Yogjakarta.

2. Presentation of the activist project by Taring Padi opposing the building of a coal power station at a fishing village in Batang, Jawa Tengah.

3. A talk about the making of the book “Taring Padi: Art Smashing Tyranny”.
