(ENG) Pieces of Muslim clothings were printed with a progressive slogan that opposes the stereotypes of conservative piety, which is often pushed by Islamic mass organizations in Indonesia today. The public participated by bringing pieces of "Muslim clothing" (baju koko, gamis, hijab, peci, etc.), which then are printed with the message “Humans are created with differences so that they can get to know each other” from Quran 49:13.  The work seeks to disseminate inclusive and egalitarian Islamic ideas through the medium of clothes.

Yovista Ahtajida is an artist and creative worker from Jakarta who often responds to the issue of Islamism/Post-Islamism, in accordance with his background from the Tarbiyah environment. He is active in group and solo exhibitions including the Vortex XII Video Kochi Muziris Biennale 2016, Los Angeles Torrance Art Gallery, JAVA: Art Energy Paris, and is a finalist of the Bandung Contemporary Art Award 2017. His solo exhibition, Hijrah was held at LIR Space, Yogyakarta in 2018. In 2019, he founded Agitator Studio, a communications consultant and creative studio that focuses on collaborating with activists and creative workers on social activism and non-profit projects.

(IND) Live screenprinting di atas "busana muslim" dengan desain ilustrasi atau slogan progresif yang melawan stereotipe-stereotipe ketakwaan konservatif dan pemaknaan identitas-identitas Islam yang dewasa ini cenderung dikuasai oleh pihak-pihak tertentu saja. Publik berpartisipasi dengan membawa “busana muslim” sebagai medium screenprinting. Karya ini berupaya untuk merebut ruang wacana tentang identitas-identitas keislaman (salah satunya dalam bentuk busana), sekaligus menyebarluaskan gagasan Islam yang inklusif dan egaliter.

Apa saja yang termasuk “busana muslim”? Kami di Fashion ForWords mengartikannya sebagai pakaian apa saja yang dipakai oleh orang-orang muslim.

Sambil menunggu proses sablon selesai, ikutilah pengajian bersama Klub Kajian As-Salam dengan pembicara Ust. Musdah Mulia. Kajian kali ini bertema “Ihwal Syariah Islam”. Hadirin juga bisa berdiskusi tentang latar belakang, visi, dan makna di balik koleksi Indonesian Muslim Looks karya Kolektif As-Salam di Fashion ForWords.

Acara disudahi dengan Buka Puasa Bersama.
