TRANSMISSION OF AESTHETIC ETHICAL VALUES OF LOCAL CULTURAL WISDOM OF THE BAJO COMMUNITY IN THE COASTAL AREA OF BOKORI ISLAND, KONAWE REGENCY, SOUTHEAST SULAWESI PROVINCE
The global discourse that Indonesia is seen by the world as a rich nation cannot be denied. The wealth that is owned is not only stored in natural laboratories, especially in mountainous areas, but is spread widely in coastal areas. We can feel this phenomenon in the frame of life of the Bajo people who have an aesthetic artistic and cultural heritage. However, changing times also seem to threaten changes in values. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out a scientific study to provide academic arguments regarding aesthetic phenomena. One specific method used as an epistemic step to find answers to existing problems is ‘aesthetic phenomenology’. Based on the findings and studies while in the field, it seems that there is a lack of disharmony between three important elements, namely (1) Kunstbeoefenaar; (2) Kunstacademisch; (3) Kunstbureaucraat. When this concept can operate in accordance with their respective styles, then what is called ‘cultural preservation’ will be transformed into ‘cultural innovation’ towards an empowered nation.
