We would like to do a research relates to the Japanese occupation in Indonesia from 1943-1945, particularly the post World War 2 period. We would like to observe its influence towards art and culture in Indonesia directly or indirectly, also when Indonesia got the independence. One other thing, we would like to trace a living witness, the former wife of the first Indonesian president, Dewi Soekarno. As the last First Lady of Soekarno, Dewi Soekarno is one of important witness when the overthrow of power that was commanded by General Soeharto ? then became Indonesian President for 32 years. From the artist perspective, we see this as a potential source of remarkable history, we are very interested in responding it based on our practice as artists. Furthermore, we would like to learn on how to place a historical context into the present situation that is more complex and more global.
