"Oprek dan Otak Atik: Indonesia’s Hack and DIY Culture."

Indonesians have their own way of bridging their country’s limited accessibility in the face of rapid technological growth. Culturally known as Oprek (hack) and Otak Atik (tinker), the hack and DIY cultures of Indonesia haven’t really been as well known as gambiarra and jugaad, from Brazil and India, respectively. But the creative approach to hacking, repairing, and modifying technology has become part of the culture and, for some, professional practice.

Even without formal education, Oprek and Otak Atik are a form of resistance to capitalism. Andreas Siagian and Lintang Radittya, who were our partners in the companion MusicMakers hacklab event this past October at Nusasonic festival in Yogyakarta, join us to share what experience they’re bringing to Berlin. They’ll talk about their own background in Indonesian engineering and hacking culture, how they’ve organised events and communities, as well as delve into their own work.

The MusicMakers Hacklab is pesented with CDM, Nusasonic, and the SHAPE platform, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. Funded by the Senate Department of Culture and Europe, and Initiative Musik.
