Made in Commons is a collaborative project of KUNCI Cultural Studies Center in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Ten artists and artist groups based in the Netherlands and Indonesia take part in this multimedia exhibition. Made in Commons is the first of four presentations at Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA) in partnership with art institutions from non-Western countries.
Made in Commons takes as its inspiration the notion of “commons” and its relation to contemporary art. In recent decades, contemporary art practice has reacted to the new wave of privatization and ownership. In response to economic decline, many of today’s artists are motivated by the concept of commons to identify relevance for the arts beyond market value.
Combining a broad range of works, Made in Commons sheds light on art as a collaborative or shared practice. At the same time, it makesclear that collaboration is a complex endeavor, especially when geographically dispersed people—who are connected through an eventful history—are involved.
The artists in this exhibition are: Irwan Ahmett & Tita Salina, Maja Bekan, Zhana Ivanova, Jatiwangi Art Factory, Maryanto, Papermoon Puppet Theater, Read-in (Hyunju Chung, Annette Krauss, Serena Lee, Laura Pardo), Dušan Rodić, Vincent Vulsma, and Wok the Rock.
