Biennale Jogja XIII 2015 (Indonesia - Nigeria)

Held concurrently with the 60th anniversary of Bandung Conference, Biennale Jogja XIII – Equator #3 (2015) had Nigeria as a partner country. Curated by Wok The Rock (Indonesia) and Jude Anogwih (Nigeria). Rain Rosidi, BJ XIII artistic director, Wok the Rock and Jude Anogwih paints the Indonesia – Nigeria relationship in intriguing contradictions: disunity and unity, disagreement and agreement, at  the same time. Hence the theme ‘Hacking Conflict’.

The activities in BJ XIII were in line with the vision of Yayasan Biennale Yogyakarta (YBY) to establish concrete efforts in structuring and redefining the ideas of internationalism and offering alternatives to relations between countries in the world stage, made unbalanced by a history of colonialism and Cold War.
