The Open Society Documentary Photography Project invites you to the opening reception for the exhibition Urban Now: City Life in Congo.
This exhibition by photographer Sammy Baloji and anthropologist Filip De Boeck (KU Leuven professor) offers an exploration of different urban sites in Congo, through the media of photography and video. Focusing on the “urban now,” a moment suspended between the broken dreams of a colonial past and the promises of neoliberal futures, the exhibition offers an artistic and ethnographic investigation of what living—and living together—might mean in Congo’s urban worlds.
