Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Museum Van Loon in Amsterdam, this catalogue reflects the curatorial thinking and perspectives of an art historian constantly questioning the role of art in relation to history. In it a multiplicity of connections between collections of colonial history with responses by contemporary artists are presented, engaging and reactivating these so-called suspended histories from a post-colonial standpoint. Rife with artworks, thoughtful essays and shots of the exhibit in the gorgeous interiors of the Van Loon house, the book includes work by eleven participating artists, among them, Fiona Tan, Simryn Gill, Newell Harry and Tiong Ang.
