What Is The Voice Of Reason

What does it mean to speak up or speak out? Voice Against Reason delves into this question. It intricately weaves the fragile temporalities that link personal narratives, historical contexts, and political themes to geography, all through the perspectives of leading contemporary artists.

Voice Against Reason is more than just an exhibition, it’s a project supplemented by a series of thought-provoking talks, lectures, and public programs. These events, planned to unfold throughout the exhibition period, are designed to deepen the audience engagement with the art and the themes it explores, and is organized by Museum Macan from across its Curatorial and Education teams, with co-curatorial support from Putra Hidayatullah and Rizki Lazuardi.
