Title

Contextualising Indonesian modern and contemporary arts: A talk by Visiting Research Fellow Yvonne Spielmann (Germany)

Description

9 Mar 2016, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Contemporary Indonesian art production is distinctive in its thematic and formal diversity, a trait that has resulted from the dynamic processes of colonial and postcolonial structures of power. Visiting Research Fellow Yvonne Spielmann is interested in how Indonesian arts of the present have emerged from a syncretistic mixing of ethnic elements and are strongly imbued with cultural and religious references. In this talk, Spielmann will discuss the contexts underlying the development of modern and contemporary arts in Indonesia, and how Indonesian art newly interprets traditional techniques and materials and marries them with Western influences and pop culture.
