A serenade to Emser Strasse - by three artists working there.

Debbie Chia – Unseen Mix

I feel that our imagination is the greatest thriller of all time. What we cannot see is infinitely more scary than what we can see. Putting together this mix, I pulled in tracks that open up your mind’s theatre. The tracks have actually done all the work for me by creating unnerving tension with imaginative sonics. But because I am not an asshole, there are also bits of catharsis when you can kind of release all of it. However, a meditative ambient mix this is not. Enjoy the show.

“The Margins Talk Back: Introducing KAUM Discourse Events “

Text by Rosalia Engchuan & Ferdiansyah Thajib

This text previously featured in KAUM Festival 2021 Catalogue Book

The margin is an off-center space. It comprises the majority actually, yet people inhabiting it are constantly positioned as the subordinate other to the self-constructed, geographical, political and ideological centers. In Indonesia, marginality assumes many faces. It is reified through historical, political, religious, sexual, gender, cultural, ethnic, economic and social differences that constitute the supposedly pluralistic country. It operates through different forms and intensities and is threaded by a common pattern of violence. To be part of marginalized communities often means to be made vulnerable to disenfranchisement, impoverishment, inequality, intolerance, stigma and discrimination. read more

In recent times, Indonesian elites have been paying more attention to the eastern region of Indonesia, especially through their infrastructure development policy. However, this policy has so far insufficiently recognized the humanitarian problems and social injustices that are faced by those living in the various parts of the region. To address these issues we are holding film screenings that will be followed by a hybrid panel discussion. The first film, Luka Beta Rasa (dir.: Narasi TV, 2020) features how conflict survivors in Maluku are overcoming trauma and pushing for peace. Speaking on behalf of Luka Beta Rasa team, is Amanda Valani from Narasi TV, and Ronald Regang, the film protagonist who is also a former child combatant. The second film Mamapolitan (dir.: Indra Siagian, 2018) is a documentary film which follows how activist Helena Kobogau maintains her identity as a Papuan woman in the midst of racialized violence. Both Kobogau and Siagian will also be speaking at the event. read more
