Dari Generasi Ke Generasi
My roots are half-Dutch and half-Indonesian which makes me an Indo. Growing up I never felt really connected to my Indonesian roots because the Indonesian culture was not prominent in my upbringing and my family did not talk much about their past in Indonesia. My Indonesian grandparents had to flee their home country because of the independence of Indonesia. My dad was six years old when he came to the Netherlands. When his family arrived in the Netherlands, they quickly adapted to the Dutch culture. This meant that talking about their past in Indonesian was not and still isn’t talked about.
Only in the last couple of years, have I become more interested in doing research about my roots and the past of my family in Indonesia. This was the start of my research project. This project is about the relationship I have as a third-generation Indo with my Indonesian roots. It is focused on my feelings about the decay of the culture and stories about the past from generation to generation. I visualized this through batik, a traditional Indonesian printing technique.
