DIASPORA I Heritage in motion

On 15 August 2020 The Netherlands commemorated the end of WWII in the colony Netherlands East Indies in 1945. Two days later on 17 August, Indonesia celebrated 75 years of independence. The aftermath of colonialism, war and decolonization still impacts people today. What does colonial heritage mean to a younger generation with roots in Indonesia living in the Netherlands? How do they relate to (historical) objects connected to this era?
