Timoteus Anggawan Kusno is an artist who composes and presents his works in various mediums, including installations, drawings, moving images, and institutional projects. He renders narratives that stretch in the liminality of fiction and history, imagination and memory. Kusno draws questions on the coloniality of power and what remains left unseen, and the process of “history-making” and its relationships to power, ideology, and collective imagination and remembrance.

He has been commissioned and shown his work internationally in several cultural institutions and biennales, including the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Netherlands; the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) Seoul, South Korea; Mumbai City Museum, India; the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) Taipei Taiwan; Center for Fine Art Brussels, Belgium; Biennale Jogja XIV Equator #4: Indonesia-Brazil, and 13th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea, among others. Currently, Kusno is doing his PhD at the University of Amsterdam. He lives and works between Amsterdam (NL) and Yogyakarta (ID).
