Chapter 5 focuses on activist practices of domiciliation and home-making that provided spaces of rest, return, and belonging. It describes how temporary activist structures called basekemp (organizational headquarters), posko (command posts), and kost (rented rooms) function as collective spaces of experimentation against New Order ideologies of family, home, and authority. The chapter introduces a private dimension to activism, exploring the ways that the bonds of friendship and communitas cultivated in activist domiciles become the foundations of political life.
