Ruangrupa (Jakarta, Indonesia) was established by Ade Darmawan and six
other artists from Jakarta. The artists’ initiative offers
artists an opportunity to formulate, develop and exchange ideas.
In the projects and collaborations, the interaction with urban life
in the city of Jakarta - that is built up solely on political and
economic motives, plays a determining role. Apart from the organisation
of workshop projects, artists-in-residence, debates and a biennial
video festival, ruangrupa publishes Karbon, the only contemporary
art magazine in Indonesia.
