The spotlight today is on queerness and its intersection with Indonesian and Indian colonialism. Rarely do these themes collide, yet in this program, guest curators Marischka Verbeek and Jasper Albinus, bring both narratives to the forefront simultaneously. They invite artists from the community to examine history through a queer and decolonised lens, allowing untold stories, unseen identities and forgotten characters to emerge. How do these artists navigate their diverse identities? How do they carve out space for these narratives within their creative work while reflecting on their place in the world?
The program will feature a new piece of spoken word art by Jasper Albinus and the presence of playwright Melissa Knollenburg, musician Robinson Jouwe and photographer Prins de Vos. In this afternoon of art and words, they will venture into uncharted territory, exploring the past with a critical eye and looking toward a future through a lens of respectful curiosity.
