From Batavia to Jakarta in art and history. The Dutch Institute for War Documentation (NIOD) and Winternachten presented a programme with poetry, prose, music and film on the most important period in the common history of Indonesia and the Netherlands: decolonization. A period in which major political upheavals rapidly succeeded each other. Artists from both countries expressed their individual experiences of the decolonization in poetry, prose and images. Old and young looked back in unison. Dutch spoken.
