Anne Reijniers & Rob Jacobs: Échangeur

Belgian filmmaker Anne Reijniers and researcher Rob Jacobs travelled to Kinshasa in the summer of 2015 to explore the thought-provoking debate on the representation of colonialism. They investigated the removal of Belgian statues from Kinshasa’s public squares after independence and met artists who addressed the colonial in their artistic work. These meetings and their research led to Échangeur (2016): a film composed of images of static monuments exhibited in a museum, statues in movement between sites and active performances of young Congolese who imagine their own version of this complex colonial past.
