Riar Rizaldi’s Tellurian Drama unfolds between the 1923 opening of the Dutch East Indies’ Radio Malabar, for which forced indigenous labourers cleared two mountain peaks in West Java, and its 2020 reopening by the Indonesian government as a historical site and tourist attraction. Fictionalised after a forgotten text by prominent pseudo-anthropologist, Drs. Munarwan, the film problematises notions of decolonisation, geocentric technology and the historicity of communication.
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.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
