The decade after 1998 was the time of euphoria for ideas of freedom and about a range of novel orientations about how social, cultural, and political lives should take place. At the same time, artists of this generation have started to explore and expand their choices of expressions using more varied artistic forms, whether through photography, performance art, art projects, public art, street art, conceptual art, video art, as well as new media art. Some of the explorations did not only give rise to the intersection between high art and low art, which had been separate before, but also encouraged approaches to art practices to take place more intensively and ideologically. By taking the collaborative approach, for example, the artist that previously served as the center of awareness and ideas can smoothly and organically turns into a collaborator or mediator.
