The Kwee Family of Ciledug Family, status, and modernity in Colonial Java. Visualizing the Private Life of the Peranakan Chinese Sugar Elite

This book is based upon a unique private collection of photographs and home movies of one Peranakan Chinese elite family, the Kwee family from Ciledug, owners of the sugar factory Djatipiring.

It aims to bring the private lives of the modern Peranakan Chinese elite in colonial Java to the fore and asks to what extent ideas about progress, development and ‘the modern’ have affected their world-view and life-styles.
