Description

Curatorial Pitch Karaoke is a game hosted by Angga Wijaya and Gesyada Siregar of GUDSKUL, where participants present an improvised curatorial idea based on images and texts from a powerpoint they have not seen before. It provides a judgement-free zone, where participants are urged to articulate artworks and concepts spontaneously. They will also have a short Q&A with other presenters to discuss their speculative pitch. GUDSKUL will use randomized slides from their collectives’ past presentation materials about collectivity, public art, tacit knowledge, and unconditional design products by the communities in Indonesia. Curatorial Pitch Karaoke is an exercise of collaborative nature in GUDSKUL's way, where everyone will be listened to and have their knowledge entangled with others, in a casual and humorous setting.

In 2018, ruangrupa, Serrum and Grafis Huru Hara initiated GUDSKUL: Contemporary Art Collective and Ecosystem Studies, a public learning space. GUDSKUL is designed as a collective working simulation study space that promotes the importance of critical and experimental dialogue through a sharing process and experience-based learning. GUDSKUL is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. More in www.gudskul.art
