Beyond the Dutch:

Indonesia and the Netherlands from 1900 until now, Centraal Museum Utrecht, 16 Oct. 2009 - 10 Jan. 2010.
Oct 2009

The Dutch colonization of Indonesia has left many traces in the development of both countries. Between 16 October 2009 and 10 January 2010, the Centraal Museum Utrecht presents a major retrospective, which is fully dedicated to the interaction between the Dutch and Indonesian visual arts. The exhibition analyses the cultural legacy of colonialism and the drastic changes that came forth from the process of decolonization, and takes a look at the present situation.

Beyond the Dutch focuses on three periods: cultural influencing during the colonial period of about 1900, the consequences of decolonization and independence (about 1950) and the present period of post-colonialism (about 2000).

Works on display by more than 40 artists include Raden Saleh, Abdullah Suriosubroto, Jan Toorop, Isaac Israels, Affandi, Hendra Gunawan, Sudjojono, Piet Ouborg, Charles Sayers, Heri Dono, Agus Suwage, Mella Jaarsma and Tiong Ang.
