This chapter explores some of the cultural, political, and ethical work of life writing that continues in national and transnational art worlds. In particular, it reviews acclaimed Indonesian artist Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo's Titik Nadir (The Low Point), which portrays the tragedies Indonesia had gone through in 1998. The work is intended to be a public display of the crisis of conscience and confidence. The remainder of the chapter discusses Sunaryo's other works such as: Tawaf, which involved a dramatic, iconoclastic obliteration of Sunaryo's past work as well as Ruang Luka, which alluded to the killings and rapes.
