In the framework of the reopening of the Royal Museum for Central Africa on 9 December 2018, BOZAR will host a series of events around its renovation, its new vision, and the issue of our country’s colonial memory, a subject inextricably linked to the Museum, which was founded in 1910 by King Leopold II. Documentaries and debates will specifically address the complexity of the renovation process, the role of this new museum in Belgium and for the world, and the opportunity brought by the museum’s reopening for institutions and citizens of Belgium to rethink their relationship to Africa, and to decolonise their habits and their minds. It is a collective responsibility that concerns all our institutions, from education, to justice, employment, through to culture and foreign affairs. Changes can emerge, with time and in a spirit of dialogue and openness.
