For the The Great Indonesia Exhibition that will open 21 October at De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam (NL) I didn’t have any influence on the selection of Batiks. There will be some interesting pieces on display that I did do research on, however that will not be included in the exhibition. But I did make an audiotour recording to accompany one of the Batiks on display, to share my point of view, or better another way to view this Batik than how it was presented in the past (and maybe still is)
Next to the audiotour, I was invited to wrote about Batik for the publication ‘Atlas van Indonesië‘ by Wbooks. The books is not an official catalog of the exhibition, it stands on its own as you will, but it will be available from 19 October.
