The ifa Gallery Berlin hosted the transdisciplinary collective KUNCI Cultural Studies Centre from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. During a 4-week research project, the collective transformed the gallery space into a temporary radio station: Radio Kunci. SLANG created a wide range of visual content: illustrations for 5 flags installed in the gallery, a key visual and 14-page flyer/poster, and a logo for the radio station. During its stay, the collective investigated the Indonesian practice of “numpang”, which refers to spatial positionings and social interactions that demand the consent of others: be it car sharing, temporary shelter, or the occupation of public spaces. Radio KUNCI broadcasted programmes about weekly topics.
