Webinar | Indonesia and the Amsterdam School #3: in Indonesia

In this Webinar series, Museum het Schip joins forces with Heritage hands-on, Pusat Dokumentasi Arsitektur, and Yayasan Museum Arsitektur Indonesia to explore these relations by inviting heritage experts, historians, architects, curators, and artists.

What are the traces of the Amsterdam School in Indonesia? How do we look at different art and architecture historical traditions in a colonial and a postcolonial context? In this Webinar, we pay attention to architects aligned with the Amsterdam School who have built in the Netherlands Indies, such as the Chinese-Indonesian architect Liem Bwan Tjie, and the Dutch architect Cosman Citroen. Moving beyond history, this session touches upon an ongoing debate in architecture: global versus local. What do we see as modern and how has the climate crisis changed our perception of modern architecture? 

In advance of this Webinar, we ask participants to search for examples of what they see as Amsterdam School architecture in Indonesia. These examples will be discussed at the end of this session.
