Tour Recaptioning Congo: Guided tour with Joffrey Anane

Each season, FOMU invites inspirational figures to guide you on their personal tour of the exhibitions. Sandrine Colard, curator of the Recaptioning Congo exhibition, will be your guide on the 2nd of October.

This will be no ordinary tour as Joffrey Anane has been given carte blanche. You can expect surprising insights and unusual perspectives.


Joffrey Anane is a professional dancer, choreographer and theatre actor who has appeared in productions ranging from ‘Aangenaam, ik ben Ish’ and ‘Come On Feet’ to the Disney musical ‘Beauty And The Beast’. He won the Red Bull Dance Your Style 2021 competition and will represent Belgium in South Africa this autumn. Alone and together with his art collective Osei Bantu, he organises jams, workshops and productions for young people. During lockdown, he went viral with his online comedy sketches ‘Afro Belg’ and his striking questions for the TV programme ‘De Slimste Mens Ter Wereld’, and he won a seat on the jury panel of Dancing With The Stars. Starting in 2023, he will be a curator and resident at the KMSKA museum of fine arts in Antwerp.


Recaptioning Congo presents images from Congo’s long and turbulent history as a colonised country, spanning nearly 100 years from its formal establishment in 1882 to independence in 1960.

The exhibition shows the contrasting perspectives of African and European photographers. The images are revealing, at times disturbing, and shed light on the relationships between past and present, Africa and Europe, Belgium and Congo.

Recaptioning Congo is the result of years of international research by curator Sandrine Colard and represents the first extensive exhibition to tackle the multilayered history of photography in the Belgian Congo.
