Indonesia, the world’s largest muslim country, is increasingly modernising. Leonie Schmidt looks at how Islamic modernities are represented in the country’s visual and popular culture, and how these representations answer questions about nationalism, gender and geopolitics in the post-Suharto period. Schmidt hereby explores various cultural expressions: the transformation of shopping centres during Ramadan, rock music, self-help books about family or business, films and contemporary art.
