Rock Indo is rock music from Indonesia, a product of the culture and globalizing outlook of the country, similar to this genre's music globally. Indonesian-specific ideas about individualism, interdependency and the supernatural have been observed in the rock videos and music of the nation; some Indonesian rock bands sometimes perform in the Dangdut style, created as a reaction to the influx of popular American music into the country in the 1960s. Due to the politicizing of the Dangdut form in the 1980s, forms of rock which contained more foreign influences came to represent dissent from the Suharto government. One of the largest rock festivals in Indonesia is the Jakarta Rock Parade, a 3-day festival hosting over 100 bands; this is a list of Indonesian rock bands: NOAH Andra and The BackBone The Changcuters Cokelat Dewa God Bless Guruh Gipsy Gigi Jamrud J-Rocks Kekal Koes Plus Koil Kotak Padi Pee Wee Gaskins Killing Me Inside Navicula Netral Nymphea /rif Sajama Cut Shorthand Phonetics Slank Sore Sucker Head Superman Is Dead The S.
The Kölner Werkschulen Cologne Art and Craft Schools, was a university in Cologne training artists in visual arts and design from 1926 to 1971. The origins of the Kölner Werkschulen can be found in the Sunday school established by the painter Egidius Mengelberg in 1822 at the Jesuit buildings; this was incorporated into the "Royal Prussian Provincial Vocational School Cologne" founded in 1833. In 1910 Emil Thormählen came to Cologne to develop a School of Applied Arts as part of the German Werkbund movement; however his plans to build a new school building had to be postponed due to the outbreak of war in 1914. When the plans could not be taken forward after the war, Thormählen retired November 1919. In April 1924, the architect Martin Elsaesser was the director of the school and designed a "Red House", an expressionist, red brick building on Ubierring 40. In 1926 the school was reorganized and the Mayor, Konrad Adenauer, designated it the "Cologne Werkschulen", in accordance with the Bauhaus point of view.
He said, "Bonn is for science and Dusseldorf for Art but in Cologne I want both." Adenauer got his way by 1919 with the University of Cologne, in 1924 with his Cologne art school, with both buildings within sight of each other. Under the rule of the NSDAP the German Werkbund movement was dissolved and the name of the Werkschulen was changed to Kölner Meisterschule; the new director Karl Berthold introduced the anti-capitalist ideology of Hitler. 1879–1906: Friedrich Romberg, engineer 1906–1910: Gustav Halmhuber and painter 1910–1919, Emil Thormählen and architect 1920–1926: Martin Elsässer, architect 1926–1931: Richard Riemerschmid, painter and designer 1931–1933: Karl With, art historian 1933–1945: Karl Berthold, goldsmith 1946–1957: August Hoff, art historian 1958–1965: Friedrich Vordemberge, painter 1965–1971: Werner Schriefers and designer Martin Elsaesser Dominikus Böhm Richard Riemerschmid Stefan Leuer Georg Lünenborg Gernot Lucas Wolf Nöhren Johan Thorn Prikker Friedrich Ahlers-Hestermann Richard Seewald Otto Gerster Stefan Wewerka Daniel Spoerri Hans Rolf Maria Koller Dieter Kraemer Friedrich Vordemberge Dieter Horký Karl Marx Wilhelm Teuwen Elisabeth Vary Werner Schriefers Gerhard Kadow Franz Dank Hubert Schaffmeister Anton Berger Hans Karl Burgeff Ludwig Gies Georg Grasegger Josef Jaekel Dorkas Reinacher-Härlin Titus Reinarz Kurt Schwippert Wolfgang Wallner Hans Wissel Richard Riemerschmid Jakob Erbar Heinrich Hußmann Alfred Will Anton Wolff Jürgen Klauke Heinz Edelmann Ernst Riegel Elisabeth Treskow Arno Jansen Wilhelm Lotz Karl With August Hoff Dorkas Reinacher-Härlin Ludwig König Georg Roth Walter Maria Kersting Herbert Schultes Bazon Brock Birgit Hein Wulf Herzogenrath Friedrich Wolfram Heubach Jörg Immendorff Leo Kofler Ingo Kümmel Ulrike Rosenbach Günter Karl Friedrich Schwichtenberg Heinz Bienefeld Johannes Krahn Ingeborg Drews Hellmuth Eichner Joseph Fassbender Edvard Frank Jürgen Hans Grümmer Hildegard Grunert Dieter Horký Ulla Horký Ida Köhne Jean Lessenich Joseph Mader Wolfgang Niedecken Anton Räderscheidt Wolfgang Schulte Franz Wilhelm Seiwert Udo Sellbach Wolfgang Siemens Helga Tiemann Rosemarie Trockel Günther Umberg Kurt Wegner Willy Weyres Georg J.
