German photographs (1917-1918): Belgium’s artistic heritage through the Occupier’s lens


16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

As part of the commemorations of the First World War, the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (IRPA) has launched the scientific project “Belgian artistic heritage during the Great War: weapon or means of resistance”, with the objective of showcasing the IRPA’s collections of photographs exhibiting the shots taken just before or during the Great War.
The culmination of this project, this open air exhibition, running right throughout the summer in the verdant setting of Brussels Park, will present a selection of photographs taken in 1917-1918 with a focus on their breathtaking technical quality and the esthetical and political motivations behind the German campaign to compile a photographic inventory.

In cooperation with the Institut Royal du Patrimoine Artistique (IRPA).
