- Writers and artists take a new look at the photo archives of Colonial Congo
Recaptioning Congo places the colonial Congo's photography history in new perspectives. Various writers take an African-centered look at imperial archival images and provide them with creative, contemporary and/or literary 'captions'.
The book accompanies an exhibition at FOMU photography museum in Antwerp and is based upon the extensive research of the photographic history of colonial Congo (1885 - 1960), conducted by Dr. Sandrine Colard. It contains a wealth of revealing images that highlight the relationship between past and present, Africa and Europe and Belgium and Congo.
