The art milieu in Indonesia under the Japanese occupation.
By Antariksa (KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, iCAN (Indonesia Contemporary Art Network))
Antariksa's presentation will explore the complexities of the
Indonesian art environment and art collectivism during the Japanese
occupation, its impacts and influences in Indonesian art history, a
topic that has largely been ignored.
Artists as ethnographers during the 80s in Indonesia.
By Dr. Amanda Katherine Rath (Goethe University Frankfurt)
In her presentation, Dr. Amanda Katherine Rath will examine the nascent
period of what today are called process-oriented and collaborative
artistic practices in Indonesian contemporary art. Dr. Rath’s
presentation provides a critical analysis of this so-called social and
collaborative turn of the 1980s as one of the major streams of
contemporary art in Indonesia.
Censorship in the arts in Post Suharto Indonesia.
By Katerina Valdivia Bruch (PhD candidate, University of Reading/Zurich University of the Arts)
In her presentation, Katerina will talk about censorship in the arts in
Post Suharto Indonesia (after 1998), addressing the impact of these
banning mechanisms in the arts field, and giving some examples that
depict the criticism and reactions against it.

Art policy and identity in Indonesia during the Japanese occupation.
A talk by Antariksa
Moderation: Katerina Valdivia Bruch
November 24th, 11 am at the Indonesian Embassy in Berlin
Antariksa's talk will deal with the many-sided developments in
Indonesian art that were furthered or brought about by Japanese
military rule (1942-45). He will explore the development of the two
newly founded art and culture organisations at that time, the PUTERA
(Center for People’s Energy) and the Keimin Bunka Shidosho (Institute
for People’s Education and Cultural Guidance), and their policy towards
the arts and identity.
