_____________

This book is a retrospective publication on the work of distinguished artist collective, the Institute of People Oriented Culture of Taring Padi (widely known as TP), which was founded at the end of 1998. Thirteen themes divide their collective body of work, with an accompanying text anchoring each theme. Through these thematic categories and introductory texts, this book documents the reactions of radical artists like TP to the social and political changes in Indonesia since the Reformasi (Reformation) in 1998. Continuing unabated to the present, those reactions have taken the form of collective works of art that are progressive, inclusive and militant.

This book launch will bring together members of Taring Padi and TImorese artists and activists. The discussion will look at the roll of art in activism and social discourse as well as the history of Taring Padi’s collaborations with Timorese artists and activists in Indonesia pre Independence and in Timor-Leste post independence. This book launch is a part of the ARTE PUBLIKU Festival.
