AMSTERDAM.-
Amsterdam’s Museum Geelvinck presents the third exhibition in the series Asia from the Heart. ‘The Dutch East Indies at Home – traces of a colonial past’ will run from April 21 to October 10. The exhibition focuses on those traces of the former Dutch East Indies colony, which still linger in Dutch homes; remnants discernible in many aspects of Dutch culture. The exhibition features an array of tangible memories, many of them collected in the days when the island archipelago of today’s Indonesia was known as the Dutch East Indies.
