EXI(S)T#5:

BODIES OF LAND SURROUNDED BY WATER

ABOUT PROGRAM

The Exi(s)t programme, first initiated in 2011 aims at creating an opportunity for young Jakarta-based artists

In the latest Exi(s)t#5, we explore the notion of the sea and its existence in the city. We explore the complexities of land-sea relations within the context of urbanism, development, and archipelagic state. It aims to facilitate critical reflections and discussions about questions such as - and not limited to - what roles (be they cultural, economic, political) does the sea play on local, regional and global levels? How do we analyse the social aspects of land reclamation as a method for creating new urban spaces? How should we discuss the relevance of ports - located on the waterfront looking outward - as points of contact between people, goods and ideas, from both a historical and present perspective? How have folklore and myths shape our imagination about land-sea relations?
