Date: 14 March – 30 April 2005
In this t-shirt project, ruangrupa conducts research and documentation on the culture of using t-shirts and how it has developed into a medium for communication. T-shirts have become one of the media that are now used to convey certain messages to the public, because of their mobile nature which follows whoever wears them.
Research and documentation will be more focused on t-shirts that are produced for the purpose of conveying socio-political statements. The use of the t-shirt medium here functions as a propaganda medium and represents identity, which is more specifically on socio-political statements conveyed through socio-political actions, music, subculture, and religion.
ruangrupa invites 2 artists and 1 writer to be involved,
- Gandung Bagus Amento (Graphic Designer)
- Irvine (Graphic Designer)
- Wenz Rawk (Writer)
This t-shirt project produces 1 series of photos, 2 interactive works, 1 video work & an article that is complemented by research through interviews & documentation in the form of photos.
