      How to get to Joyo | Cara menuju Joyo
      .Joyo is an antique shop and restaurant with a bright yellow color building. It is located at the East side of Kaliurang recreation park. Joyo is the meeting point of  900mdpl. The easiest ways to get to Joyo is by using a car/motorcycle from Jogja. It takes about an hour from Jogja city center (approximately 25 km away). First, you need to go to Kaliurang street then continue following the main road until you find retribution station (here you need to pay retribution fee, about IDR 5000). Afterwards, you will find an intersection with a shrimp sculpture in the middle, make a right turn here. Follow the street a bit further up until you find another intersection with a monkey sculpture on your left and all you have to do is just keep on following the big street for about 100 meters more and you are going to find RM Joyo on your right side.

      .Joyo adalah sebuah restoran dan toko barang antik dengan bangunan berwarna kuning cerah. Joyo juga berperan sebagai titik pertemuan dalam pameran 900mdpl dan terletak di sebelah timur taman rekreasi Kaliurang. Cara paling mudah untuk mencapai Joyo adalah dengan menggunakan kendaraan prbadi, atau menggunakan kendaraan online. Waktu yang dibutuhkan untuk mencapai Joyo kurang lebih satu jam dari pusat kota Jogja dengan jarak tempuh kurang lebih 25 kilometer. Dari arah Jogja, kita cukup berkendara dari jalan Kaliurang dan lurus saja mengikuti jalan utama hingga melewati pos retribusi Kaliurang (membayar sekitar Rp 5000). Setelah melewati pos retribusi Kaliurang kita akan bertemu simpangan Patung Udang, lalu ambil jalan kekanan. Kemudian kita akan bertemu simpangan Patung Monyet, ambil arah jalan yang lurus naik keatas. Kurang lebih 100 meter, kita akan menemukan RM Joyo di kanan jalan

      Agung Kurniawan (Indonesia)
      Agung Kurniawan works with a variety of media. He has developed his artistic work within the field of concrete socio-cultural activism; he believes an artist has more and larger social responsibilities than simply producing artistic work. His traditional medium is drawing, but lately he works actively with performance art, he refuses to be called as a performer, and preferred to call himself as the director of the crowds instead. Both as a studio artist and an art activist, he takes up clear positions and his approach often leads him either down to street level or to intervening in bureaucratic structures.
      His work is reputed to be fairly “coarse” due to themes of violence, controversial politics and taboo subjects. The artist started out with book illustrations, drawings and comics, which offered a harsh, often satirical critique of Indonesian society at that time. With his drawing Happy Victim (1996), depicting people hanging upside down while laughing cheerfully, he won a 1996 Philip Morris Art Award and gained international recognition.
      He co-founded "Indonesian Visual Art Archive" (IVAA) and co-owner of Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) in Yogyakarta. His works are to be found worldwide mostly in museums e.g. Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Singapore Art Museum, as well as in private collection. His recent works include his performance in The Netherlands "Remember Day Parade and after", during the so-called transHISTORY (Arnhem June 2016) and his video art during the Europalia Festival 2017 (Paleis voor Schone Kunsten / BOZAR / Centre for Fine Art Brussels, Belgium).
