The Makings of Arts from Southeast Asia and the Problems of Colonial Legacies
Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia
8-10 November 2022
This three-day event is a collaboration between the Faculty of Art and Design, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV) and is organized in relation to the annual international conference on Aesthetics and the Sciences of Art in Bandung, Indonesia. The conference brings together artists, curators, and scholars from various disciplines to rethink artistic and curatorial practices and histories of framing and collecting objects from Southeast Asia. It aims to facilitate discussions about the continuing colonial legacies in knowledge production about art in the region as evidenced in the makings of exhibitions and the institutionalization of art historical narratives and collections.
As part of the conference, we organize “Graduate Sessions” to gather new perspectives and innovative research related to the aims and themes of the conference with the goal to develop the papers into scholarly publications. We invite graduate students and Ph.D. candidates to address the following areas of concern, although we are also open to other inquiries. CLOSED.
