_______________________________________

Maryanto visualizes an alternative history of his home country Indonesia, addressing issues like poverty, pollution, exploitation and corruption. His fable-like drawings recount the effects of mining and technological development on the urban landscape. He uses propaganda aesthetics to portray Suharto and his wife, as well as the people who disappeared during their reign, adding an unsettling shade of black to the portraits. With his grim aesthetics Maryanto critically investigates the dissonance between formal historiography and his personal memories.
