Power and other things Indonesia & Art (1835-now)


18 10 '17 > 21 01 '18 @ BOZAR

A chronological story beginning with four fascinating 19th and 20th century artists, including Jan Toorop and Raden Saleh, who shaped Indonesian art history. Alongside them, contemporary Indonesian and European artists, including Agung Kurniawan, Antariksa, Mella Jaarsma, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Roy Villevoye and Ana Torfs, will contribute mostly new creations. They testify to the interactions through trade, culture, religion, ideology and war that characterise Indonesia. A unique portrait of recent Indonesian history, from the last convulsions of the Dutch colony and Japanese occupation to today.
