Beyond Esok: Notes and Postscripts from the Jakarta Biennale 2021
This oldest art exhibition for the public in Jakarta returned on 21 November 2021–21 January 2022. Presenting 38 international artists who collaborated with 50 art collectives and groups in and outside the country, the Jakarta Biennale ESOK could be seen as a testimony to the art scene’s resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. This book serves as an archive of the event with a brief reflection on what the theme ESOK (‘tomorrow’) means for the exhibition’s continuity as an indispensable part of the city of Jakarta.
