The book is part of the installation De Spoorzoeker (The Tracker):
Sourced from photographs and letters in the family archive, including the memoir Dirk Jan wrote about his experiences as a prison laborer on the Pakanbaroe railroad, The Tracker is an installation in which artist Lique Schoot searches for traces of the life of her grandfather, Bronbeker Dirk Jan Schoot (1898 - 1989).
This period in his life marked a turning point both for him and for the generations thereafter. The installation consists of three paintings, a book about the life of Dirk Jan and three railways of 5, 25 and 30 meters,
which are partly within and partly outside the museum Bronbeek.
