Diplomacy of Triviality merupakan sebuah upaya untuk memeriksa hubungan antara Indonesia dan Brazil melalui text-text yang ada di dunia maya. Teks-teks ini sering kali bersifat trivial, seperti informasi-informasi yang ada di Wikipedia, maupun yang sangat serius seperti penelitian-penelitian yang dipublikasikan lewat jurnal ilmiah, yang saking seriusnya membuat teks ini seperti tidak penting dalam kehidupan sehari-hari. Teks-teks yang remeh temeh dan tidak penting ini kemudian diolah oleh peneliti-peneliti yang terlibat dan disandingkan dengan karya-karya yang dibuat oleh seniman.

Diplomacy of Triviality is an attempt to look into the relationship between Indonesia and Brazil through texts that exist in cyberspace. These texts are often trivial, such as information on Wikipedia. But we can also find overly serious ones such as published studies in scientific journals. They tend to be so serious that they become very unimportant in everyday life. These trivial and insignificant texts are then processed by the researchers involved and paired with works created by the artist.

ViaVia Jogja hosted its first contemporary art exhibition in 1996. Since then hundreds of mostly young local artists have used the restaurant space to express themselves. In addition we have held several concerts, debates and movie screenings. For more details, please click on the "t", which will take you to Tumblr and a time travel back in ViaVia history!
