Nuraini Juliastuti is co-founder of KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, established in 1999. Her research interests are situated between contemporary art production, digital culture, the making of commons, and performance of participation. Nuraini’s research writings have been widely published in Indonesia and internationally. In collaboration with KUNCI, she has produced a body of research works, which use publication, exhibition/presentation, and gathering as modes of intellectual and political engagement.
Nuraini has recently developed her own publication-based project titled Domestic Notes that uses domestic and migrant spaces as sites to discuss everyday politics, organisation of makeshift support systems, and alternative cultural production. With Kunci, she is working on The School of Improper Education (2016–2019), which represents Kunci’s latest conceptualisation of alternative education, artistic practices, and social activism.
