What are the human, environmental and economic consequences of mining in Katanga, in DR Congo? In their films 'Pungulume' and 'Mangeurs de Cuivre', artists Sammy Baloji (DRC) and Bodil Furu (NO) highlight the role of and craving for resources in the turbulent history of civil wars and conflicts in DRC.
On Sunday 8 December Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond will show these two films in collaboration with Cargo in Context. Between the two screenings, curator Rosa Spaliviero (Picha) will have a conversation with anthropologist Filip De Boeck (KU Leuven, BE) to further discuss the topics addressed in the films.
