The Museum


Junita Arneld joined MUSEC in 2006, working on projects to enhance the museum's Indonesian art collections, particularly those relating to the cultural traditions of the Dayak people, from which she is originally. Having deepened and perfected her knowledge of photography - her eternal passion - in 2012 she was awarded the title of best Indonesian photographer in the Gallery Photography Indonesia Foundation (GPI) competition. In the following years, her landscape and travel photographs, taken during numerous explorations of the Indonesian archipelago, were selected for group exhibitions in South Korea and Indonesia. Another photographic genre she researches is still life. 
Since 2013 Junita Arneld has been a member of the Governing Board and Jury of the GPI Foundation's photography competition. Since 2015 she has been supporting the activities of the MUSEC Conservation and Exhibitions Laboratory as a photographer. Her favourite works at MUSEC are the samurai armours from the Morigi Collection.
