Bentara Budaya Jakarta is an art gallery-cum-museum in Jakarta. It houses interesting art collection gathered by Jakob Oetama that includes the work of Indonesian craftsmen of wooden puppets, sculptors, painters, etc. The art gallery hosts many exhibitions to promote the art culture of Indonesia, hence the place was known as a cultural institution. On rare occasions, the visitors might find art works from foreign artists.
The building was first called ‘Schouwburg’ since they made the first performance of the famous play ‘Othello’ by Shakespeare. Gedung Kesenian Jakarta is today a hub for artists from all over the island to showcase their talent ranging from theatre, drama, film and even literature. The structure was initially erected as a simple structure which was later modified into an empire style. Since then, there have been many transformations which have taken place from time to time since it was founded in 1821.
