【採択時の概要：英文のみ】 Jakarta Biennale is a biannual international contemporary art exhibition. Initiated by the Jakarta Arts Council in 1974 as an Indonesian Great Painting Exhibition, Jakarta Biennale has been as an international event since 2009.
Melati Suryodarmo, in her capacity as the Artistic Director of Jakarta Biennale 2017, proposes a discussion on the actual relevance of the Indonesian concept of Jiwa within contemporary cultural and artistic realms. Through Jiwa— understood as life, energy, vigor or soul, a driving principle for individuals, collectivities, societies, non-humans or nature— Jakarta Biennale 2017 is looking at the whole spectrum of relations, mobilizing the registers of the sensuous, the affective, and the cognitive, the very schemes by which we make sense of the world. Jakarta Biennale 2017 approaches changes in society by sharing a diversity of art forms and methods, intellectual and practical encounters as well as educational propositions. Besides the main exhibition and performance art series in urban public spaces, we are initiating a series of publications in order to promote the critical writing on the recent history of Indonesian art.
