For the Dutch Resistance Museum we have created the exhibition design COLONIAL WAR 1945-1949. DESIRED AND UNDESIRED IMAGES

The exhibition focuses on a forgotten aspect of the colonial war in the Dutch East Indies: the influence of the Dutch military intelligence services on how the Dutch media reported on the conflict. The exhibition casts a different light on the colonial war and shows the power and impact of photography and film. The official image of the war on Java and Sumatra aimed at manipulating public opinion. Without images of violence there seemed to be no war.

From 26 November 2015 through 3 April 2016
