Retrone­sia: The Years of Build­ing Dan­ger­ously

Indonesia Expat - - EVENTS -

1 March 2016

Who would have thought that an In­done­sian Her­itage So­ci­ety evening lecture on the city of Ban­dung would ac­tu­ally in­spire a six-year quest? This, in fact, hap­pened to Tariq Khalil's work on his book, Retrone­sia's High Style Re­dis­cov­ered. Tariq's imag­i­na­tion can be traced from the so- called Jenki ar­chi­tec­ture, Indis­che styles with the new ge­om­e­try of post-war South­ern Cal­i­for­nia's drive-in cul­ture. He set forth from Su­ma­tra to Pa­pua to take pho­tos, col­lect oral his­to­ries and archival im­ages. Retrone­sia un­cov­ers a lost era of the times that speak bold­ness in ar­chi­tec­ture and shows the hey­day of In­done­sian mid-cen­tury mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture — how it shaped the look of the new Re­pub­lic. The lecture will take place at Eras­mus Huis Au­di­to­rium. For more in­for­ma­tion please visit www.her­itage­jkt.org/ lec­tures/evening-lec­tures. Price: Stu­dents—Rp. 30,000 | Pub­lic— Rp. 50,000
