Recaptioning Congo presents a chronicle of the long and turbulent history of photography in the colonial Congo. It spans nearly one hundred years, from the formal establishment of the colony in 1885 to its independence in 1960.

This active tour takes you through different perspectives. With works ranging from propaganda to African amateur and studio photography, Recaptioning Congo offers an unparalleled dive into the photographic construction of a colonial ideology, which includes the self-portrayal of African lives.

Our guide will be happy to take you through the exhibition. The photographs in the exhibition are revealing, sometimes surprising and disturbing, and shed light on the complex relationships between past and present, Africa and Europe, Congo and Belgium.
