About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Taring Padi

Taring Padi was founded in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 1998 by a group of progressive art students and activists in response to the Indonesian socio-political upheavals during the reformation era. Consequently, Taring Padi’s artistic practice is always part of and contextualises within socio-political and cultural action and solidarity with a wide range of communities and social groups. Taring Padi’s works and solidarity actions are manifested in collective works in the form of woodcut posters, large-size banners, rontek, cardboard puppets, music, carnival, and other art actions.

In the summer of 2022, Taring Padi participated in documenta fifteen and presented 1,000 cardboard puppets made by citizens who took part in the Wayang Kardus Workshops at Framer Framed.
