The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] presents the exhibition "KURIKULAB: Moving Class" by Serrum, an artist collective based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Serrum gathers members from diverse backgrounds, who mainly work in the realms of art and education. The group operates across various formats and media, ranging from platforms for discussing education, politics, and urban issues, to video and comics that have been shown internationally. This exhibition is the first showcase of its kind in Japan, and features three "local community" and "learning” themed event style works that encourage dialogue among visitors, while at once giving an overview of Serrumʼs activities to date. The event as a whole is designed to function as a platform for accumulating and sharing the values and the knowledge of those visiting. As a stage for people of various generations and backgrounds to engage in a dialogue about "learning," the exhibition will be an opportunity for encountering new possibilities in collaboration and education, and for reconsidering forms of friendly behavior toward others. We hope you will take this opportunity to join us.
