discussion on product design, jakarta,
15 november 2019
The whole series of Occupying > Modernism was wrapped up with a critical discussion of modern products and architecture in Indonesia. The three speakers in this session were Setiadi Sopandi, Avianti Armand, and Alvin Tjitrowirjo.
Each speaker was invited to choose ten objects to be critically discussed from a personal perspective. Both Setiadi Sopandi and Avianti Armand talked about architectural objects, while Alvin Tjitrowirjo chose product design objects. Various projects of different scales were discussed one by one, from buildings to toll road payment machines.
After the event, we took down the exhibition, removing all exhibition materials from the gallery – except for a banner hanging on the electrical pole before the gallery, without knowing how long it would stay.
