Curator-in-residence

Committed to supporting artists, curators, and researchers by offering them time and space to pursue their research without the pressure of deadlines and production commitments, the Residencies Programme values the open-ended nature of artistic research and embraces multiform expressions of creative enquiry. Aiming to facilitate the production of knowledge, this studio-based programme is dedicated to established and emerging artists and serves as platform for critical exchange in Southeast Asia. The Residencies Programme offers a wide spectrum of programmes aimed at sharing the process of artistic research with the public - Residencies OPEN / Studio Sessions / Insights, which range from open studios, artists’ talks, conversations, performances, and screenings. The Residencies Programme unfolds through annual cycles and runs by nomination only. Every year, a rotating pool of curators and arts professionals from all over the world is invited to nominate two artists for the residency. The nominated artists are subsequently invited to submit a research proposal along with their portfolio and CV. Ultimately, the Residencies Committee, an international panel of experts, reviews the submitted materials and designates the artists who are awarded the residency.

Reflections on curating, commons and collectivity or why does reproductive work matter in an institution?

Intellectuals conduct research, write texts and curate exhibitions. Within these range of practices, intellectual work means the production of knowledge, but what about the work which enables this production of knowledge to take place such as cooking, cleaning, caring? Taking the position that reproductive work is a site for creating new forms of cooperation and for “communing”, Curator-in-Residence Syafiatudina will discuss the practice of curating and the division of labour based on the KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, an alternative cultural space and collective of researchers and cultural practitioners, based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
