What Bungalows Can Tell is the result of extensive artistic and architectural research on the village of Kaliurang (Yogyakarta region, Indonesia). It brings together different essays and a series of photographs that critically explore the spatial, transformative effects of globalisation and heritage formation on a local scale. It looks specifically at the colonial bungalows and the stories in and around them. What can they tell?
The essays are written in Indonesian and English. The main typeface used, Frasa, was made by Tokotype — an Indonesian type foundry. For us it was important to not split the two languages but to have them run next to each other, with highlighting the Indonesian text as the main language.
