The Fondation Carmignac is pleased to present Congo in Conversation in Paris, an outdoor exhibition on the gates of the Saint-Jacques tower until January 27, 2021, in partnership with Ville de Paris.
28 photographs selected from the reports that you have been discovering on this blog for the last 6 months are on display, taken by Arlette Bashizi, Dieudonné Dirole, Justin Makangara, Guerchom Ndebo, Finbarr O’Reilly, Raissa Karama Rwizibuka, Moses Sawasawa, Pamela Tulizo and Bernadette Vivuya.
Together, the journalists reveal communal ideas about African women, beauty and fashion, leading to a deeper exploration of self-esteem and self-confidence in a post-colonial context. They brave the front lines of conflict and examine the challenges of living through a pandemic while subsisting in an informal economy where access to water and electricity is severely limited. They report on the environment, youth activism and protests by opposition supporters and human rights advocates, reflecting themes central to their own lives.
