The MigratieMuseumMigration will host from 18 April to 31 May 2023 an exhibition in collaboration with CEC-ONG “Notre Congo/Onze Kongo”. This exhibition focuses on the Belgian colonial propaganda. Through iconographic documents and videos from the colonial period, the exhibition aims to understand how the different propaganda channels justified colonisation to the general public. The dissemination of images and slogans contributed to the shaping of a collective imagination still very present in our societies through monumental vestiges and stereotypes about the Congolese community and more broadly about Afro-descendants. This exhibition also aims to initiate a reflection on these representations.
We invite school groups to visit this exhibition as part of their history, geography, social science and language courses. Workshops and presentations will be held throughout the exhibition to allow for discussion with pupils and students.
Self-guided tours (without a guide) cost 5 euros per student.
Workshops cost 8 euros per participant.
