In 1897, a Dutchman by the name of Van Deeterkom took over a bankrupt grocery store at the ‘Groote Postweg' and modified it into a hotel. This marked the birth of the Grand Preanger Hotel. In 1929, the hotel was renovated by the famous Dutch architect, C.P Wolff Schoemaker with the assistance of no less than the future first president of Indonesia, Ir. Sukarno. These days, the Grand Preanger has become a historical landmark of Bandung and one of the most famous odes to the Art Deco era. The white building that houses the Grand Preanger Hotel is decorated in typical Art Deco style, with a tower surrounded by flowing wings and repeated abstract patterns. The good thing is that its style has always been recognized and maintained during renovations, so the exterior as well as interior still bear the markings of the Art Deco age. Located in close proximity to Bandung 's historical and business centre, the hotel caters to business travelers and tourists alike. The absolute center of Bandung is right next to the entrance, so there can be little doubt of its central position.

The famous Preanger Hotel of Bandung, first built in the 1880s and subsequently redesigned with Art Deco flourishes in the 1920s by the famed architect, Professor Wolfe Shoemaker. The young Sukarno who was his student at the Technische Hogeschool (now Institut Teknologi Bandung), is believed to have assisted Shoemaker in the endeavour. The hotel was renovated again in the 1980s. This shot shows the old wing.

In April 1955, twenty-nine countries from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East came together for a diplomatic conference in Bandung, Indonesia, intending to define the direction of the postcolonial world. Representing approximately two-thirds of the world’s population, the Bandung conference occurred during a key moment of transition in the mid-twentieth century—amid the global wave of decolonization that took place after the Second World War and the nascent establishment of a new cold war world order. Conference participants such as Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Zhou Enlai of China, and President Sukarno of Indonesia seized this occasion of change to attempt the creation of a political alternative to the dual threats of Western neocolonialism and the cold war interventionism of the United States and the Soviet Union.
This collection of essays speaks to contemporary discussions of empire and decolonization and explores the precursors and afterlives of the Bandung moment. Making a World after Empire reestablishes the conference’s importance in the global history of the twentieth century.
