From the inside cover, 'Although contemporary art in Indonesia is well integrated within the global art discourse, the context of Indonesian artists is fundamentally different from that of Western artists, for whom notions of individuality and 'autonomy' play a key role. Indonesian artists, on the other hand, tend to think and work from the perspective of the communities of which they are already a part [of]. The book focuses on the Jakarta-based artists' initiative ruangrupa as well as a number of other Indonesian artists and initiatives (Homeshop, Jatiwangi Art Factory, Lifepatch, Morelyono, Wok the Rock) as case studies of the individual and collective artistic practice of Indonesian artists.'
