Open call for a workshop about 'Khawagaka': the teachings of an ancestral manuscript, covering basic elements in its belief system (creation, faith, commandments, history, guidance, and prophecy). The Khawagaka used a language called Zufrasi and a writing system called Zugrafi. The manuscript has recently been translated into Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) and English.
Sound artist Bani Haykal, based in Singapore, is fascinated by the intimacy between humans and machines, and their relation to belief systems. A key word in his artistic research is the Malay word ‘semangat’, in both meanings of spirit and soul. In his letter to family and friends, Haykal reminisces about how to escape from the dungeons of big tech, who hold our spirits captive.
