Ten essays by emerging scholars draw upon unexplored archives and works of art, bearing witness to rich local histories and uncovering complex artistic exchanges across Southeast Asia and beyond. This volume sheds new light on the significance of architecture, painting, installation, photography and sculpture in the historical narratives of this period and offers fresh insights into artistic production and reception within the cultural and political contexts of post-colonialism and the Cold War, the legacies of which continue to shape the region today.
