Wayang kardus, Indonesian for recycled cardboard puppets, are part of Taring Padi’s artistic practice, and are used to support people in their struggles for social justice. In demonstrations, the typically life-sized cardboard figures served various purposes: to voice aspirations, to “enlarge” the masses, to lift the mood, to protect from the scorching sun and police violence.
Together with the artists, the workshop participants learn how to make those cardboard puppets. These will also be included in the lumbung artist’s contribution to documenta fifteen.
