Date/Time: Date(s) - 09/09/2017, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Categories: Panel discussion
Moderated by Dr Kevin Fogg (University of Oxford)
Panel to involve presentations by Sumarsam on his current research into Islam and performing arts, Garin Nugroho on representations of Islam in his films, Eric Sasono (Indonesian Documentary Film Centre, Jakarta International Film Festival) and Soe Tjen Marching (SOAS)
“Setan Jawa has been described as an exploration of Indonesian pre-orthodox Islam. It presupposes that Islam exists in multiple manifestations, and that there is none which has a monopoly on the truth. This idea of plurality within Islam has been hugely controversial in Indonesia over the last decades, and the source of much political debate. This panel considers the aesthetics, ethics and politics of representing Indonesian Islam today, with leading scholars and artists looking at theatre, music, film, novels and other forms of representation.”
