In their nearly imageless film constructed from the audio archive of the 1961 Harvard Peabody Expedition to Netherlands New Guinea, Karel and Kusumaryati document the strange encounter between the researchers and the indigenous Hubula people of New Guinea. Expedition Content explores and upends the power dynamics between anthropologist and subject, between image and sound, offering a parallax image of the histories of ethnographic recording and colonialism.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
