Galerie Royale Centrale

Cifas (suite...) proposes a research and creation workshop led by Claudia Bosse, nourished by the collections and history of the Royal Museum of Central Africa and by a work in situ in Matonge's galerie d'Ixelles.

In coproduction with Les Halles and the Royal Museum for Central Africa.

With the help of the Austrian Cultural Forum.

Galerie Royale Centrale - Rewriting History
The workshop

The base material will be created on the spot, with shop tenants and daily users of the galerie, through interviews and personal documents, and a process of rewriting stories connected to the space of the galerie, confronting the collected material with documents from the colonial memory from the Museum.

Participants will analyse spacial concepts, discuss texts, create performative frames, meet Museum scientists of different fields, analyse the handling of Museum collections and the particular story of the Museum in the history of colonialism.


This research will end with an installation / performance in the galerie d'Ixelles, made ​​of stories, thoughts, memories, documents, life, everyday culture, history and practical presences, in the context of Festival Trouble, 23 to 27 April 2013.


Subscriptions before 22 March 2013.
