Electric Palm Tree Open Circuit #1: Yogyakarta

Electric Palm Tree (EPT)
Open Circuit #1: Yogyakarta

Open Circuit #1: Yogyakarta is a gathering of artists, curators, writers
and other cultural producers from different parts of the world, aiming to
analyze ways of approaching various local social and cultural contexts.
Open Circuit is a central project of Electric Palm Tree’s first year of
existence, sharing its interests in comparatively looking at different
(regional) discourses on the socio-political transformations in the world
of the last decades and at new intellectual and artistic vocabularies
describing encounters of difference. The work in Yogyakarta is set to be
the basis for an exhibition next March at SMBA Amsterdam.

Open Circuit #1: Yogyakarta consists of closed door workshops and a series
of public program, Nocturnal Ngabuburit, which take place in different
venues across Yogyakarta. Please consult the program and do join us! For
more information on Open Circuit #1, please contact the coordinator Grace

Electric Palm Tree is a long-term project for artistic and intellectual
practice that focuses on issues related to the politics of culture in the
current global society, developed by the curators Kyongfa Che, Binna Choi
and Cosmin Costinas.
