Collective Performance - Pulau G: Invitation to a Public Consultation

15 Feb 2020 | Hannah Ekin & Jorgen Doyle - Island G, Jakarta

Collective performance: Pulau G: Invitation to a Public Consultation, Tuesday 17.12.2019

 - Jorgen Doyle, Hannah Ekin, Alex Head, and Anna Kostreva.

 - Special Thanks to Das KAPiTAL, Gabriel Vallecillo Marquez, Alireza Hemmet and our public.

Thanks also to Rujak Centre for Urban Studies,  ZK/U Berlin and ifa Gallery Berlin.

Pulau G (Island G) is an artificial island constructed as part of a large scale land reclamation project on the north coast of Jakarta, Indonesia. Through various failures, its development as elite real estate is currently halted, leaving it as an awkward sandbank wasteland mostly visited by birds.

Despite (or rather in answer to) spiraling global debt and environmental turbulence, large real estate projects like the one intended for Island G are premised on high-risk, high-reward financial speculation, luring foreign investors with the promise of enormous capital gains.

Join Jorgen Doyle, Hannah Ekin, Alex Head, and Anna Kostreva (Wasteland Twinning Network), for a staged public consultation where they will perform the arguments of major (and fictional) stakeholders in the island’s future: opportunist artists speculating on new blockchain technology, International investors exploiting the digital and physical potentials of Indonesia’s coastline, Friends of the Earth and the Save Jakarta Bay Coalition, as well as real estate developers and the North Jakartan elite.
