Indonesia

On 23 March 2016 the Research Center for Material Culture and KITLV invite you to the lecture and workshop ‘Uncovering the secrets of sound and rhythm in the context of the ethnic Moluccan music of Indonesia’ delivered by dr. Christian Tamaela, ethnomusicologist and theologist (Universitas Kristen Indonesia Maluku). 

This research project focuses on how ‘Islam’ was collected, categorized and exhibited in Dutch museums, in particular the almost total absence of Indonesia in the narrative of Islamic art history.

Each year, the RCMC offers several short-term residential research fellowships for scholars, curators, and practice-based researchers working on issues related to RCMC research themes.
