As part of the exhibition 'Kinshasa-(N)tonga', on display until 20 November at Kanal-Centre Pompidou, Nicholas Lewis' book 'Colonial Tales, Trails and Traces' was launched. It focuses on the traces of colonial history in the Brussels public space. Art historian and gallerist Anne Wetsi Mpoma: "This book is really interesting because it summarises everything scholars but also activists say about public space in Brussels. The Brussels public should read it, because we totally ignore the colonialism that is still present here today."
