TransActions in the Field: Archive Exhibition @ Lostgens’
Transaction is a poor substitute word for exchange, given its materialistic insinuations. Yet material documentation remains the primary source and evidence, that activities were done, knowledge was exchanged, and experiences lived. 25 artists, activists, and community workers, gather at Jalan Petaling and Kampung Banda Dalam, to participate in a 12-day program to explore ideas and discourses around social interventions and participatory public art. As a non-participant, my only option to get involved is to look through a static exhibition of historical things. Maps, brochures, photographs, recycled objects, booklets, prints… Time to re-read and reflect again on Jay Koh’s Art-Led Participative Processes.
