Style Congo : Heritage & Heresy
Style Congo: Heritage & Heresy explores the politics of cultural representation and appropriation through contemporary artistic and architectural interventions and historic materials, primarily from the CIVA collection in Brussels. Based on the eponymous exhibition and using Art Nouveau as its starting point, this book chronicles the representation of the Congo in international and colonial expositions held in Belgium, France and the Congo between 1885 and 1958.
