THE PANGERAN DIPONEGORO HALL

At the Tugu Kunstkring opening night, exactly 99 years after the building first opened its doors, a colossal painting of THE FALL OF JAVA was shown to the public for the first time. The 9 x 4 m painting depicted the capture of Prince Diponegoro on 28th of March 1830 at the house of Magelang Resident, after the betrayal of General De Kock from the Dutch-Indies Government.

In Indonesian art history, this legendary scene of Prince Diponegoro’s capture has only been painted by J.W Pieneman and Raden Saleh. This makes The Fall of Java as the third painting in the world that portrays one of the most iconic events in Indonesia history. The painting can be appreciated in a themed room Ruang Pangeran Diponegoro, dedicated to the Knight on A Horse.

The Pangeran Diponegoro Room is a magnificent hall with high ceilings that has a seating capacity of 75 people. It is furnished with a long beautiful wooden table in the middle decorated with flowers, candles and elegant white linens.

MULTATULI ROOM

The Multatuli room is dedicated to the life of Eduard Douwes Dekker (1820-1887), known by his pen name Multatuli, a famous Dutch writer who wrote the satirical novel Max Havelaar. His writing denounced the abuses of colonialism in Indonesia that he witnessed during his duty as Assistant Resident of Lebak, Edward Douwes Dekker found that the forced labor imposed on the people had exceeded the limit, including the practice of extortion which had been made by the Regent of Lebak and his officials by asking for crop or livestock from its people. Despite its terse writing style, it raised the awareness of citizens of Europe at that time, that the wealth they had gained and enjoyed had been the result of suffering in other parts of the world. This awareness eventually motivated the birth of the new Ethical Policy, by which the Dutch colonial government attempted to “repay” their debt to their colonial subjects by providing education to some classes of natives, generally members of the elite who were loyal to the colonial government.

The Multatuli room has a seating capacity of 15 persons.

COLONIAL RIJSTTAFEL ROOM

This room is inspired by the famous royal dish “Rijsttafel” (a Dutch word that literally translates as “rice-table”), a celebratory meal performed for and adopted by the Dutch. The presentation of the Rijsttafel is quite spectacular, consisting of a wide array of dishes.

The culinary highlight is the Rijsttafel Betawi, taken from the culinary experience from the colonial times in Batavia. The grand meal consists of a sampling of a lot of different Indonesian dishes varying in spices, color and flavors. It is a true journey for the taste buds.

The Rijsttafel Room has a seating capacity of 8 guests.

SOEKARNO 1950 ROOM

The love and pride of the people of Indonesia for Soekarno have never grown any dimmer with the passage of time. Soekarno, a figure known as artist; fighter and proclamator of the Independence of Indonesia; the first president of the vast country and the national hero who had represented the young country at the Asia-Africa Conference in 1955, continues to be as legendary as ever.

It is to the honor of this great man that Tugu Kunstkring Paleis presents humbly the Soekarno Room 1950, so that his memories will always stay vividly alive in the hearts of the Indonesian people.

Soekarno Room 1950, on the second floor of the historical building of Tugu Kunstkring Paleis on Jalan Teuku Umar 1, Menteng, Central Jakarta, features an oversized table of solid wood surrounded with 26 seats. This is an inspirational place for art lovers to soak in the historical pieces associated with the life of young Sukarno. A black and white photo of young Soekarno brings to life the presence of the dashing figure in the room. Another photo recounts the sentence for imprisonment bestowed upon Soekarno and his two friends as they faced the colonial court in Bandung.

RADEN SALEH ROOM

The Raden Saleh room is dedicated to the life of Raden Saleh Sjarif Boestaman (1811 – 1880). He was a pioneering Indonesian Romantic painter of Arab-Javanese ethnicity. He was considered to be the first “modern” artist from Indonesia (then Dutch East Indies), and his paintings corresponded with nineteenth-century romanticism which was popular in Europe at the time. He also expressed his cultural roots and inventiveness in his work. Most popular painting is “The Arrest of Pangeran Diponegoro”

The Arrest of Pangeran Diponegoro, which depicted the betrayal of the rebel leader Prince Diponegoro by the colonial government, thus ending the Java War in 1830. The Prince was tricked into entering Dutch custody near Magelang, believing he was there for negotiations of a possible cease-fire. He was captured through treachery and later deported.

The Raden Saleh room has a seating capacity of 16 – 20 persons.

Francis in 1896, Njai Darna was published and later on played on the Indonesia’s big screen in 1940s.
