A conversation between KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, (Antariksa, Syafiatudina, Ferdiansyah Thajib), Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht (Binna Choi), and The Showroom, London (Emily Pethick) three organsiations that work in ways that are in formation, driven by specific kinds of knowledge-production, practices and ideas, and responsive approaches to working with communities, through which we resist fixed forms and institutional structures.

Casco and The Showroom have been engaging with questions surrounding the politics of (art) organisational practices through a number of research-orientated networks, such as Arts Collaboratory, Cluster, Common Practice, and thematic projects such as Circular Facts, Practice International, Site for Unlearning (Art Organisation) and How to work together. Through these, ongoing critical dialogues have been generated that aim to better position and value organisational work beyond narrower understandings of art and curating as centred around artworks or exhibitions or projects.

At KUNCI’s office we wish to open this conversation up to address affinities and contextual differences between our three organisations.

Percakapan antara KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, (Antariksa, Syafiatudina, Ferdiansyah Thajib), Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht (Binna Choi), and The Showroom, London (Emily Pethick) tiga organisasi yang berkerja dalam cara-cara yang masih terus terbentuk, didorong oleh jenis-jenis produksi pengetahuan tertentu, praktik dan gagasan serta pendekatan responsif pada kerja-kerja komunitas, yang menolak bentuk baku dan struktur-struktur pelembagaan.

Casco dan The Showroom berkecimpung dengan pertanyaan-pertanyaan seputar politik praktik pengorganisasian (seni) melalui serangkaian jaringan yang berorientasi riset, seperti Arts Collaboratory, Cluster, Common Practice, dan proyek-proyek tematis seperti Circular Facts, Practice International, Site for Unlearning (Art Organisation) dan How to work together. Melalui cara-cara ini, dialog kritis yang berlangsung diarahkan pada posisi dan nilai kerja pengorganisasian yang lebih baik di luar pemahaman sempit atas seni dan kurasi yang terpusat pada karya seni atau pameran atau proyek.

Di kantor KUNCI, kami ingin membuka percakapan ini untuk mencari afinitas dan perbedaan kontekstual antara tiga organisasi tersebut.
