What do Patrice Lumumba, Princess Elisabeth of Belgium and the Ku Klux Klan have in common?
Find out in the one-of-a-kind experience where David Katshiunga challenges the national representatives to make the conversation about (de)colonisation more tangible. A new dimension to the Congo Commission, which was set in place to uncover the colonial history of Belgium.
To achieve this, he has chosen the independence day of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the entrance hall of the Federal Parliament to exhibit ten of his life-size, black-and-white paintings for a two-week period.
Authenticité was created as a collaboration between Katshiunga and Nadia Nsayi, political scientist and author of 'Dochter van de dekolonisatie'.
During the exhibition, the art print 'The Only' will be sold and the proceeds donated to the charity 'Si Jeunesse Savais', in Kinshasa, Congo.
Are you curious about the meaning behind each work and how it can contribute to the decolonisation process? Then register* now.
