Tour

Brussels, an amnesiac metropolis (fully booked)

© Les Visites de mon Voisin

Join the ‘man next door’ (Gaspard Giersé) and immerse yourself in the amnesiac colonial metropolis that is Brussels, a city where some very shady characters get to live forever thanks to copper from Katanga. This tour will take an unflinching look at Brussels’ public space, unravel the colonial myth and highlight the issues involved in coming to terms with the memory of Belgium’s past in the Congo.

In cooperation with Les Visites de Mon Voisin.
