Wrong choices

“It is a privilege to perform this transfer of sovereignty in the face of history, or rather: in the presence of God, who alone knows why this union in freedom was not achieved earlier nor later, and who knows of the generations' failures, but who also sees how we may serve the plan for the progress of mankind."

Kepala Batu (Head of stone)

On National Liberation Day 2012, the former Van Heutsz Monument has been unveiled for the third time in its history. This time by spoken word artist Olympia Latupeirissa. At this occasion, she gave a rendering of the speech Foute Keuzes, which she developed together with the artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum. In the speech, the public is invited to repossess the monument as a battleground for ideological conflicts. The poet took the lead, by claiming the statue for the unresolved issue of the treatment of the Moluccans by the Dutch government.
