Latiff Mohidin

Pago Pago (1960-1969)

Latiff Mohidin’s life work has been discussed extensively within national and, to some extent, regional frameworks, yet his contribution to global modernism remains understudied. Seen as a step toward addressing this gap, this catalogue seeks to position Mohidin within Berlin art circles of the 1960s, and unravel what could be contingently described as painting from within the tradition. The catalogue also explores the formative role of Mohidin’s Pago Pago series not only in his oeuvre, but also in our very ability to write about Southeast Asian history.
