Bali - Behind the scenes

Endless sandy beaches, imposing temples, rolling rice paddies and the perfect surf scene. That’s Bali. At least, that’s the Bali we know…

In BALI – Behind the scenes you’ll see the pressure this island paradise is under, but also the resilience of island culture. Get to know the Hindu priest out to preserve traditions in his own way and meet the artist and activist Made Bayak whose work highlights Bali’s problems with plastic waste.

This exhibition takes you on a journey to Bali. Discover rituals you wouldn’t normally experience as a tourist and gain an insight into the island’s colonial past. Feast your eyes on rare artefacts such as palace treasures and intricate wood carvings, alongside the work of contemporary Balinese artists. Are you coming?

BALI – Behind the scenes is on show from February 14, 2020 through to January 10, 2021

Behind the scenes

Barely on the map as a travel destination in the early 19th century, Bali is now bursting at the seams. Despite the prosperity that tourism generates, behind the scenes it has massively impacted the quality of life. The exhibition shows that impact through the eyes of the Balinese.
