Topic: Community-Based Art
Kerja Berbasis Masyarakat:
Are community-based artworks really created for the good of the community? Who benefits from it? Are these community-based artworks just another form of 'silencing' and saviorism? Through this project, Mysara is questioning the ulterior motifs behind widespread and policed programmes of community-based artworks. A realm that, for many artists are, a lucrative spot to receive government funding.
Concept and outcome:
To create a satire proposal, looking into such initiatives.
The proposal will use the meme to understand structural issues when applying for grants and to understand critically community-based artworks (one in SG and one in Indonesia) and to relook at them critically.
Research will be done by surveys and interviews with Singaporean and Indonesian artists to research on their own understanding of community based art projects.
To question: who are such projects for, and do they really help and protect the marginalised (second meme)
How do you create art projects that engage and is accessible to all layers of community with care and without exploitation.
