Exposition: Congo Connecting

Carl De Keyzer - Astrid Huis
Between 2003 and 2009, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer (Kortrijk 1958) visited Congo several times in search of traces that recall the period of Belgian colonization. In the exhibition 'Congo Connecting', photos from this series are shown at Pennings Foundation in Eindhoven.... As one of the first photographers, De Keyzer visualized the effects of the arrival and departure of a colonizer. The images of daily life with traces of the past evoke an atmosphere of alienation. What impact do these photos have today? The Netherlands also has a complex past of domination beyond its own borders. We now look at our colonial past in a different way and are more and more aware of all the consequences that this has had. The recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations left no one indifferent! How do we learn to deal with racism, discrimination, imbalanced power relations and misplaced sense of superiority? Through an 'open call' we ask contemporary photographers and artists about their vision and images of Congo today. Meer
