René van Helsdingen en Ramses van Veldhuisen
In this collaborative work, Tiong Ang and André Kruysen bring different elements of colonial art history together. The artists explore multiple critical positions, disavowing a mere exploitation of their own Indo-identity. They launch an absurd idea: to explain the art collection of Sukarno to the stone monument of Jan Toorop. This powerful sculptural portrait by Dutch sculptor John Rädecker is erected in the Embassy area of The Hague. In Dutch art history, Jan Toorop is the iconic example of the ‘Indo-artist’.
