Research Team of Y.B. Mangunwijaya Room (Indonesia-Yogyakarta)
The room is to present to redefine the intellectual legacy of Y.B. Mangunwijaya, an important clergy and cultural practitioner from Indonesia. The spectrum of his legacy will unfold through the archive, findings, literature, and artworks. The main literature used to reread his though was from a novel titled “Ikan-Ikan Hiu, Ido, Homa (1983)”; “Wastu Citra (1988)”; “Menuju Republik Indonesia Serikat (1998)”. From those three books, Romo Mangun’s ideas about colonialism in the archipelagic region, alternative knowledge system, and political decentralization, still became relevant to see and read today.
We are able to present Y.B. Mangunwijaya room thanks to several institution, community and individual supporting this project: Laboratorium of History, Theory, Technology and Design Studies FAD-UKDW, Yayasan Dinamika Edukasi Dasar, Pusat Dokumentasi Arsitektur (Architecture Documentation Centre), Bondan Petra Dipenogoro, Linda Oktavia, Patrick Manurung, Tito Hendrata.
