Filmreihe Donnerstagskino: Ethnologische Themen der Zeit
Film by Matthias De Groof, Belgium, 2019, 69'; Languages: French; English subtitles.
Palimpsest of the Africa Museum
In 2013, the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Brussels (Belgium) closed for renovation. But, it is not only the building and the museum cabinets that are in need of renewal: the spirit of the museum has to be updated for our times as well. The process of decolonisation leads to fierce discussions between museum staff and the group of Afro-descendent experts employed to advise on the process. With his film, Matthias De Groof offers a glimpse behind the curtains of a museum dealing with relevant questions about heritage and representation.
