Asia Art Archive marks its 15th year by extending 15 Invitations to creative practitioners to look within and beyond the organisation as an archive, a collection of material, a digital platform, and a node in a wider collective network. The publication records the project Toko Pura-Pura, staged by Jakarta-based artist collective ruangrupa. The name is a play on 'toko rupa-rupa' or 'assorted shop', where many of Hong Kong's Indonesian domestic workers' daily needs are met. Utilising old and new archives, the shop served as a transactional space where knowledge and ideas were exchanged through collaborations with Hong Kong-based artists, musicians, designers, and cultural initiatives.
