Biographical Text

Mumtaz Khan Chopan (Indonesia) is an artist whose painting and photography practice is strongly informed by his personal experiences. In 2013, Mumtaz was forced to flee his home country of Afghanistan due to war and discrimination. He has been living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, ever since. He co-initiated the Publishing Solidarity platform (together with Anang Saptoto, Alec Steadman, and Sanne Oorthuizen), developing a children’s colouring book to share the situation of refugees in Indonesia and to raise funds to support one particular refugee community in Jakarta during the Covid-19 pandemic. In collaboration with Bodies of Power / Power for Bodies, Mumtaz is currently developing a podcast series about refugees in Indonesia, including personal stories and research into the legal and structural frameworks that dictate their lives.
