Watch and reflect on HackteriaLab 2014 - Documentary *Seni Gotong Royong

Hlab2014 banner.png

HackteriaLab 2014 was scheduled to be held in April 2014, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A number of smaller events, workshops, residencies and exhibitions will prequel the main collaborative lab-phase. It is the fourth edition of an intensive two-week transdisciplinary collaboration amongst international and local artists, hackers, activists, scientists, and designers. HackteriaLab 2014 expands on ideas and methodologies about BioArt, DIY biology, Appropriate Technology, ArtScience and BioHacking, developed during the previous versions of HackteriaLab 2011 - Romainmotier and HackteriaLab 2010 - Dock18/Zürich in Switzerland and HackteriaLab_2013_-_Bangalore in India.

Within the framework of "Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art", the HackteriaLab immersive format plays a key role in experimentation and the development of new models for knowledge sharing and collaboration building, in the emergent artistic practices related to bio- and nanotechnology and science in general.

HackteriaLab, our version of a production workshop, is a form of cultural intervention, contributing to the development of our contemporary culture and art milieu. It creates a melting pot of the practices of art and science, of culture and environment. It aims to broaden the intercultural knowledge exchange and realizes this know-how through workshops, participatory prototype exhibitions and online wiki-like documentations.

HackteriaLab 2014 invites international artists and scientists to collaborate with local communities, which have been intensively working with specific local social and ecological issues in Yogyakarta.

The democratization of knowledge and curiosity through gotong-royong art, by Grace Samboh, 2014

Selected Chapter from the HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta Book

Gotong-royong art is not a genre. It is a method, an approach, or even a series of processes that do not need to end immediately. It has no single objective, much less tangible and measurable ones. Gotong-royong art can be executed using any kind of medium and has at least three criteria. First, the emphasis on the idea rather than the roles of those who are involved. Say, for example, residents in a neighbourhood decide that they need a better road. They set a target to finish fixing the road in a month. Rather than hiring men to install paving blocks, they decide to chip in to procure the materials and to do the work as a part of the neighbourhood watch. After calculating and considering the resources they have, the residents agree on installing a set minimum of paving blocks per day.
