Chapter Summary

Malang, a hilly resort town in East Java, was from the 1950s to the 1960s a city alive with arts and cultural performances. In this chapter, the author reconstructs the cultural dynamics of the Malang Chinese in their hey-day in the 1950s and their critical transition in mid-1960s. The chapter helps to understand the context and forces that shaped the diverse cultural articulation, the complex tensions and fusion of culture and politics at the time, and the marked shift after the country was shaken by the 1965 political upheaval. In its focus on Malang as research site, the chapter is comparable to historical and sociological studies on specific sections of Indonesian Chinese communities in Yogyakarta and Surakarta at different times. The author focuses the discussion on the various cultural groups and associations emerging in the 1950s, with diverse and usually competing goals and cultural orientation.
