On 1 February 2023 we were able to present the publication Dipl.-Ing Arsitek: German-trained Indonesian Architects from the 1960s at the Goethe-Institut Jakarta. The event, which was attended by family members of the architects featured in the book, many team members and numerous guests, was a beautiful conclusion to the project.
The evening began with a welcome address by Dr Stefan Dreyer, Director of the Goethe-Institut Jakarta. Short talks by Sally Below, Avianti Armand and Moritz Henning introduced the overall project Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism, the exhibition Dipl.-Ing. Arsitek: German-trained Indonesian Architects from the 1960s at Taman Ismail Marzuki in Jakarta and the publication itself. Following the discussion moderated by Ingo Schöningh, Head of the Cultural Department of the Goethe-Institut, copies of the book were symbolically presented to the attending family members of the architects featured in the book. With many interesting conversations, the project ended after almost two months with this beautiful evening.

This title is expected to become available in spring 2023, and can be ordered via the publisher’s website.
