The conference is conceived of as a three-day gathering with presentations, discussions, seminars, and workshops set up in collaboration with ITB and KITLV. It will take place in Bandung, the symbolic site of political decolonization, where the spirit of liberation percolated in the staging of the Asia-Africa Conference in 1955. As two institutions that have strong ties to the history of colonization and as laboratories of colonial modernity in the East Indies and its metropole, ITB and KITLV serve as more than a symbolic site for epistemic change. Both institutions strive to produce research, artistic pedagogy, and practice that confront the shadows of colonialism. Taking Bandung as the inspiration for and connection to ongoing discussions about the decolonization of knowledge, the conference seeks to interrogate and break away from what is colonial about the representation of art from Southeast Asia.
