On the 25th of April the exhibition 'The Past is a Foreign Country' opens in the Tropenmuseum.
Commissioned by the Tropenmuseum, photographer Anoek Steketee made a series about a remarkable phenomenon in Indonesia: ‘plesiran tempo doeloe’. Men and women, young and old, revive colonial times by role playing and dressing up. People ride around on antique bicycles, stroll in the colonial suits and reenact the Police Actions.
Are the people fulfilling a need to nostalgia? Is this the result of historical consciousness, or is it just ostentation without any meaning?
Photographer Anoek Steketee and writer Arnold van Bruggen try to answer these questions with photos, interviews and research. Anoek Steketee added stories about 7 of her photo's in the audio tour.
The exhibition is open until the 1st of September.
