Performance: Dadang Christanto, Litsus

Performance: August 12, 2009
4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney

The title of this performance refers to the repressive and anti-democratic legislation enacted by the Suharto regime in 1990, ‘Litsus’ required all prospective members of parliament to undergo a test to determine whether or not they held ‘communist sympathies’. Christanto performed Litsus underneath his 2009 installation, Cost of Dreams.
