Mahina – An ode to women

The year 2018 marks the 67th anniversary of the first Moluccan KNIL soldiers arriving in the Netherlands. Accompanying these soldiers were Moluccan women — the focal point in expressing and conveying Moluccan culture. The traveling exhibition ‘Mahina – An ode to women’ commemorates this historic arrival. This exhibition tells the story of the contemporary Dutch-Moluccan community; focusing on the crucial role that women played within it.’Mahina – An ode to women’ is a triptych consisting of facial portraits, theme portraits, and short documentaries. These tell the story of the past, present and most importantly the future of the Moluccan community as it relates to Dutch society.
The traveling exhibition ‘Mahina – An ode to women’ is made by Teru collective: Jaïr Pattipeilohy, Lesli Taihuttu and Atêf Sitanala. In collaboration with Stichting Moluks Historisch Museum and Tuhuteru and Partners. Made possible by Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds.
