This project discusses critical voices that have challenged the dominant colonial narrative in the context of the Dutch East Indies/Indonesia. The project combines journalistic and academic writing with musical performance and film making to amplify these voices and to analyse why they have long been ignored in the public and academic debate.

Keywords: Low Countries History, Colonial history, Dutch East Indies, Social movements, Protest, Pressure groups, Cultivation System, Political Legitimacy.
