"ONCE UPON A TIME, INDONESIA 1966" is a project by The Secret Agents for OK. Video Media Arts Festival 2015. The theme of this biannual festival this year is "Orde Baru" (New Order); which, in Indonesia, started in 1966 and ended in 1998.
The Secret Agents displayed what look like pages of a book entitled ONCE UPON A TIME, INDONESIA 1966. It's a book filled with all the things that happened in 1966 around Indonesia. We were inspired by how vague the history of our country is, and how most of the history we learned in school back in the Orde Baru era are fabrications, done by the government at the time. What is fact and what is fiction?
The Secret Agents are Indra Ameng & Keke Tumbuan, a duo working on projects involving conceptual art, good music, and other delightful things...
