Symposium ZOOMING IN / ZOOMING OUT. On Colonial Monuments

Leopard, Lion, Cock

Friday 20 March 2020, 1-6 PM
University of Antwerp, Campus Middelheim, Antwerp

 

 

 

 

 

From 2020 onwards, the Middelheim Museum is initiating a series of projects on colonial history and the related monuments that adorn the streets of Antwerp. These projects are part of the city’s policy to study and make accessible the meaning and history of its public heritage.

First in this series is Zooming In / Zooming Out: On Colonial Monuments, a symposium gathering scholars, artists and cultural workers to reflect upon historical attitudes, healing gestures, artists’ responses, and institutional choices.

Matthew Stanard, author of The Leopard, the Lion, and the Cock. Colonial Memories and Monuments in Belgium, will talk about 'Past Empire Present: A history of Belgium’s attitude towards colonial monuments from 1960 to today' .
