Artist Statement

More than fifty years of anesthesia is not a short period for victims and their families to inhale and endure the suffering caused by the crimes against humanity and the 1965/66 genocide in Indonesia. Unfinished business does not mean it should be forgotten. The violations of human rights that happened in Indonesia during 1965 – 1979 have been taken to the court of the International People’s Tribunal (2015) in Den Haag. The findings regarding the victims, perpetrators and witnesses have also been presented, resulting in several appeals that should have been carried out by the government. However, several years have passed now, and one would wonder was it just only to get our hopes up?

(Amicus curiae is a term commonly used in trials which means ‘friends of the court’, referring to those who have an interest in a case and present their legal opinion on the court.)
