Tolerance is one of central issues in today’s social and political life in Indonesia. Although multidimensional and complicated in its practice, it is one of fundamental cultural roots and national core identities. As a multicultural nation-state which consists of various ethnic, racial and religious groups, tolerance is an important cultural root manifested in various social, political, cultural, religious forms, particularly art forms. Various art forms like architecture, puppet shows, ornaments, clothing, music, and other performing arts, were historically created on the basis of ethical principle of tolerance. Here, art is a media for strengthening social cohesion through which the spirit of tolerance is inherited from one generation to another. Yet, the greater and greater dominance of political power in shaping everyday cultural life has a tremendous impact on social life, particularly on the fading of the sense of tolerance. The political system that celebrates individualism and egocentrism has systematically eroded the spirit of tolerance to be replaced by antagonistic and conflicted forms of social life. The end result is a divided society with the congenital value of hostility, antagonism, and enmity. In this antagonistic social situation, there has been a great challenge for art in general, and art education in particular, to take a certain role in an attempt to rebuild a new construction of tolerance in contemporary informational-digital society. In art education, there are at least three locus of tolerance that could be developed: 1) tolerance in art processes, 2) tolerance through art events, and 3) tolerance in art work.
