Hegemonic and Counter-Media Frames of the Unsolved-Past Tragedy


Tempo magazine has brought the memory of the unsolved-past tragedy of Indonesia, “1965/66 Event” in some ways in both New Order era and Reform era. The collapse of New Order has clearly influenced the framing of “1965-Event”. During New Order, the event was remembered as the effort of Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) to ‘coup d’etat’ the state in which many victims in the aftermath were barely reported. Tempo Reformation framed the event from the perspectives of once-marginalised groups such as the family of PKI followers, witnesses and the assassins.
