Critical Circulation Mi

Mi or Mie in Bahasa Indonesia means “noodles,” while mi in Chinese can mean “rice.” These over-indulgences of critical carbs are the workout diet for the Ultracirculation study group. Now in Yogyakarta, Critical Circulation Mi invites listeners into a guided soundscape with aurations by KUNCI Study Forum and Collective, School for Improper Education (SOIE), Elaine W. Ho, and Wan Ing Que. While eating, listening, and reading, field work-in-progress looking into the so-called “undocumented period” of the New Order Regime will be broadcast and unfolded in collaboration with participants in SOIE.

Tune in on Sunday, 19 February via Radio KUNCI ( at around 14:00 CET for an hour of Critical Circulation Mi, a sharing of outcomes and experiences of a workshop experimenting with critical fabulations, scalar chronologies and asymptotal storytelling.


Electricity pole with a mess of entangled cables, resembling cable mi, some radio equipment, an on air sign hanging in the left right corner, in the lower left corner the Chinese character for a place like restaurant, shop or for cultural activities and other things. A small truck and the word “story” floating next to it. Blue border with green swirls framing it.


This event is part of the field work of Ultracirculation, a study group within Ultradependent Public School. Circulated by Wan Ing Que and Elaine W. Ho, Ultracirculation investigates forms of movement that escape mainstream routes of access to capital—cultural, intellectual, economic, political. It is interested in a kind of knowledge that can only be created in transit.

Ultradependent Public School (01 April–27 May 2023) unfolds as the public negotiation of a curriculum to learn what we really need to enact the worlds we really want. It is co-convened with an extended faculty of students, educators, and practitioners. Emphasizing study as a radically collective, public labor that lives in-between institutionalized hierarchies, UPS inhabits the edges between formal classrooms and everyday life. It navigates kitchens, print studios, housing squats, community centers, garages, radio stations, hallways, public transportation, and sidewalks as sites of study.

Complaint Making: Setting Up Conflict-Positive Spaces for Community Building Praxis

Vishnu would like to share feminist governance tools (FGT) focused on three of many tiers in community building praxis. FGT is based on the values of equity with an emphasis on creating psychologically safe environments, drawing on the use of consent. Decision-making processes, setting up conflict-positive spaces, and complaint-making as diversity work will form the body of this three-day training. Rooted in Vishnu’s autho-ethnographic practice, this work will explore the power dynamics that impact decision-making processes.

The Diamond Mind II

In this dance training, the people will use a one-minute film of their own movement as material for a booklet—a sixteen page signature—that distributes their presence, their gesture, as an act of EQ.

Too Late To Say Sorry? 

A bad apology can ruin a friendship, destroy a community, or end a career. In this workshop, we will investigate the impact of apologies on our relationships and our worlds. Why and how do we make apologies? What can giving and receiving apologies teach us about values and integrity? Should you apologize for something you don’t really feel sorry for? We will explore conflict and how we like to be in conflict with others. We will dive into our own boundaries. We will seek to understand how honoring limits becomes an act of building (or freeing) better worlds capable of holding so many, many more of us.

Huisje, Boompje, Beestje (D.A.F.O.N.T.)

In this rare masterclass, retired teacher and artist Glenda Martinus teaches participants a thing or two about painting with Microsoft Word. Martinus shares tips, tricks, and secrets on how to use this software to its unexpected potential as a drawing tool. Participants learn how to draw three basic objects—a house, a tree, and an animal—in a seemingly innocent exercise that perhaps contains more layered social commentary. Drawing the worlds we desire does not require expensive tools or education, simply a curiosity to understand how the monster’s tools can topple the house of the master.
