Behind the Postcolonial : Architecture, Urban Space and Political Cultures in Indonesia, Paperback / softback Book

Behind the Postcolonial : Architecture, Urban Space and Political Cultures in Indonesia Paperback / softback

Part of the Architext series

Description

In Behind the Postcolonial Abidin Kusno shows how colonial representations have been revived and rearticulated in postcolonial Indonesia.

The book shows how architecture and urban space can be seen, both historically and theoretically, as representations of political and cultural tendencies that characterize an emerging as well as a declining social order.

It addresses the complex interactions between public memories of the present and past, between images of global urban cultures and the concrete historical meanings of the local.

It shows how one might write a political history of postcolonial architecture and urban space that recognizes the political cultures of the present without neglecting the importance of the colonial past.

In the process, it poses serious questions for the analysis and understanding of postcolonial states.
