Open Lecture: Farid Rakun from ruangrupa collective

Join us for a conversation, rather than a one-way-lecture, with Farid Rakun of Indonesian collective ruangrupa.

Farid Rakun will speak about his experiences of collective practice in various contexts. He is also curious to know more about your thoughts and experiences of collectivity and how it might be practiced within the Academy, as well as beyond it.

Trained as an architect (B. Arch from Universitas Indonesia and M.Arch from Cranbrook Academy of Art) Farid Rakun wears different hats, depending on who is asking. A visiting lecturer in the Architecture Department of Universitas Indonesia, he is also a part of the artists’ collective ruangrupa, with whom he co-curated TRANSaction: Sonsbeek 2016 in Arnhem, NL and currently functions as the collective Artistic Director for documenta fifteen (Kassel, 2022). As an instigator, he has permeated various global institutions such as Centre Pompidou, La Biennale di Venezia, MMCA Seoul, Sharjah Biennial, Bienal de São Paulo, Harun Farocki Institut, Dutch Art Institute (DAI).
