Before I began to start writing, I found myself asking these questions:
|Case study for the summer course||—|
|Statement of interest||
Since I read the course rationale I have been very eager to be able to participate in the course "Cultural Diversities East and West: Postcommunism, Postcolonialism and Ethnicity". Currently I have just completed my MA course in Goldsmiths College, London,. I was able to continue my study in England because I was awarded a scholarship by the British government. The inspirational academic environment in Goldsmiths College has enabled me to gain more knowledge and insights about art and culture, as well as presenting works which are creative in their own right. Most of my academic projects address issues of postmodernism, postcolonialism, politics, gender and freedom of expression in Indonesian culture — all of them which are then analyzed in my dissertation that attempts to reexamine Indonesian culture through cases of censorship in Indonesian arts, media and politics.
|Plans for the future||Planning to teach courses on: Art and Cultural History, Philosophy of Art.|
