The waiting has come to an end! Witness the world premiere of GoJeks new service GoArtist! I will come to your place and create an artwork for you.
My service includes a wide range of media and the artwork will be customized for your place and according to your personal needs and desires. No more crowded gallery openings, no stressful art auctions, just order the artist personally! Engaging with contemporary art has never been that easy….

Based on my experiences with Southeast Asia‘s leading on-demand multi-service platform GoJek, which offers you more than 20 services to order, I developed GoArtist, which adds a new service: you can order me and I will come to your place and create an artwork. I named the work GoArtist and not GoArt, to put emphasis on that you don’t only order a product like food or gas, but you order a person to do sth for you. GoArtist does not stop at the door, but requires providing access to your home and during the next 2 hours‘ conversation we will define the outcome of an artwork together.
The concept is imagined as an exchange and sharing of time, so the person who ordered is invited to support the GoArtist by giving the amount of her or his personal two-hours income, which claims a state of equality in the value of their activity. The focus lies on the direct interaction of two individuals, according to the each one teach one practice.

GoArtist is questioning the order-on-demand practices, the relationship they cause among people, the value and appreciation of activity. At the same time GoArtist is searching for new ways of engaging with contemporary art in turning the way of content distribution upside down. The threshold of entering the heterotopia Art Museum disappears. GoArtist researches on what can be called contemporary art itself.
