Islamic Art in Indonesia – a neglected and problematic heritage

On Wednesday, 28th January 2015, I had the chance to take part to a beautiful and interesting research convention¬†wonderfully organised by ACMES (Amsterdam Centre for Middle Eastern Studies). During the panel entitled “Collecting Islam in Europe”, I was particularly impressed by the presentation of¬†Mirjam Shatanawi (National Museum for World Cultures, Leiden) about Indonesian Islamic Art.
