Dibalik is the Indonesian word for ‘behind’. This exhibition examines the voices and unspoken stories of Indonesian women which are often expressed indirectly, privately and behind closed doors. Dibalik explores the experiences of Feminism in Indonesia with its longstanding history spurred by political revolution and decolonisation.

Featuring Arum Dayu (IDN), Erika Ernawan (IDN), Meicy Sitorus (IDN) and Tamarra (IDN), this exhibition addresses traumatic histories of comfort women during World War II, religious expression and traditions for women, the male gaze, bodily autonomy and transgender experiences. Dibalik features documentary and contemporary photography which address  multiple perspectives of what women have and continue to experience in the public and private realm, both in Indonesia and globally.
