The Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversations is an initiative of the Museum of Kaliurang Community (MUKKA) that is created as an attempt to archive the space and as a continuous knowledge transmission of trans-generational memory. This museum started as a collection of works from the 900mdpl biennial exhibition in Kaliurang starting in 2017. Pieces of community history are collected through memories, conversations, and stories as a concept of oral tradition and another form of a ‘museum’. The location is always moving and acts as a temporary museum, it works as an illustration of how the ground is continuously moving beneath us. Another version of the museum has been exhibited in Kaliurang (2019) and ISCP - New York (2020). This time, the museum displays several works previously exhibited in the third iteration of 900mdpl: Genealogy of Ghost and How to Live with Them (2022) which aim at the relationship between human, non-human, and the environment around it.
