The Democratic Republic of Congo celebrates 50 years of independence this year. In a double exhibition, Carl De Keyzer places the past and present of this former Belgian colony next to each other. A set of books is a reminder of this. 'Congo Belge en Images' includes a selection from thousands of archive images taken by the first colonists.In addition to white oppression in dark Africa, you also discover the vulnerability of Europeans in the tropics. De Keyzer and Lagae allow you to look through colonial eyes.No captions; the opinions are your own.
