As a public prelude to the project Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism in the Bauhaus centenary, a symposium in Berlin brings together international curators and experts to explore the history and the presence of modernism in Southeast Asia in the four selected cities.
Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism sheds light on the history, significance and future of socially relevant design ideas of postcolonial modernism in the region and thematises them in the context of the Bauhaus centenary 2019 in Germany. With partners in four selected cities – Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Singapore and Yangon – Encounters explores the impact of modernism at the crossroads between early globalisation, local conditions, and the search for an own identity, starting with the period of upheaval that accompanied the transition to independence after colonial times.
