ART CREATES CHANGE

ARAHMAIANI

One of Indonesia’s seminal and most respected contemporary artists, Arahmaiani has long been internationally recognized for her powerful and provocative commentaries on social, political and cultural issues. Her work has grappled with contemporary politics, violence, critique of capital, the female body and, in recent years, her own identity. Although Muslim, Arahmaiani still mediates between Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist and animist beliefs. She often uses her public presence in order to attract attention to violence and, in particular, violence against women or female discrimination in Indonesia’s Islamic society.  Since September 11, 2001, she has combined her critical attitude toward Islam with a fight against growing Islamophobia worldwide. Arahmaiani’s current project looks at environmental issues on the Tibet Plateau with a community of Tibetan monks.
