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 and the fall of Suharto. 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. Taring Padi often run workshops at their studio and undertake collaborative projects with communities and national and international art and political groups.

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 numerous locations among which Framer Framed. In 2023, Taring Padi completed a residency with Casa do Povo and MST in São Paulo, Brazil. Their collaborative work from the residency was presented in the exhibition Tanah Merdeka (2023) at Framer Framed in Amsterdam.
