Kongopapieren (Kongo papers, 2010) exists out of photographs and a book which shows my research into the representation of Congo in Belgium.

I was wondering how and where the colonial history is still present in Belgium; what

kind of history is cultivated and what is rather forgotten. In my research I came across

places with remarkable stories in which the distinction between facts and fiction

seems to blur.
