You no doubt remember that between 7 October 2016 and 22 January 2017 BOZAR and the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) had put on this outstanding exhibition devoted to popular painting in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The exhibition brought together portraits, landscapes and canvasses of urban and historical inspiration, which inspired a critical reflection on the social reality of the country. Now the “Garage” is in turn displaying a selection of them.

The presence of African art in Russia and issues relating to colonialism raised by the exhibition are examples of the driving force art played in cultural exchanges between the North and the South, but also between Western Europe and Eurasia. Through cultural diplomacy, BOZAR and the RMCA help to sustain critical reflection and the regeneration of the European narrative.
