Print Issue no. 5 by Manual Jakarta
This latest issue delves into the past through the city’s under-appreciated visuals. Stories of three families embracing dual identities and down the memory lane with actress and musician Sherina Munaf. It delves into memories that are confined to Jakarta and has continued to redefine the city for the past 35 years. While this issue observes the city with a lens of nostalgia, they are mindful about not falling into the trap of romanticisation. Instead of looking at the past as an act of yearning for a simpler time, they tap into it as a path for discovery and rediscovery of the culture and the city that we’re living in.
