Wetsi Art Gallery · What is the place of black women artists and/or intellectuals in Belgium?
Anne Wetsi Mpoma · Alesandra Seutin
19.09.23 | 18h
After the screening of Pascale Obolo’s film, La Fabrique des contre-récits, a film produced in 2020 as part of the first subsidized exhibition showcasing the work of women artists from Belgium and France, True her (Through her). This exhibition was never made accessible to the public, as part of the exceptional measures taken during the Covid-19 health crisis. Filmmaker and project co-curator Pascale Obolo interviews some of the artists involved in the project: Luna Mahoux, Agnès Lalau, Laura Nsengiyumva, Hélène Amouzou, Mireille Asia Nyembo. Based on the question: can a museum collection be decolonized? The artists share their sources of inspiration, the way they perceive their work, and their relationships with institutions.
Possibility to ask questions in NL and EN.
