Analysing Indonesia through art

For the past 30 years, the work of prominent artist and activist Moelyono has focused on advocacy for marginalised individuals and communities in Indonesia. Flinders University is currently hosting a live studio installation and week-long residency program, with the opportunity for visitors to view his works and meet the artist.

Art works on display are pieces from Moelyono’s 2017 exhibition Amok Tanah Jawa (Battle for Land in Java) held in Yogyakarta, which marked an important shift in his practice combining performance and painting.

Drawing on four iconic paintings from Indonesia’s colonial past, Moelyono reinterpreted the works through a contemporary lens to create a multi-layered commentary on social, artistic, political and economic life in Indonesia today.
