Geopolis, Brussels

September 9, 2021 - October 24, 2021

The collaborative report Congo in Conversation is presented in Brussels, as part of Geopolis's cycle of exhibitions.

Directed by Finbarr O'Reilly and realized with the contribution of Congolese journalists and photographers, Congo in Conversation addresses the human, social and ecological challenges that the DCR faces today, within the context of this new health crisis.

The selection of 16 photographs from presented in Brussels puts together the work of 8 photographers : Finbarr O'Reilly, Moses Sawasawa, Raissa Karama Rwizibuka, Arlette Bashizi, Dieudonné Dirole, Guershom Ndebo, Pamela Tulizo, et Justin Makangara.

The exhibition spreads across three places in Brussels : Geopolis's exhibition place at the Atelier des Tanneurs, the Egmont park, and Geopolis' new radio café called l'Ascenceur.


Géopolis is a photojournalism and educational center created in 2017 by a small team of geopolitical enthusiasts. By combining photographic and educational exhibitions, regular events and radio programs, it aims to question current affairs. Installed at the Ateliers des Tanneurs in an original place made up of passageways, the center offers cycles of exhibitions dedicated to current or historical themes. These exhibitions present both photographic works by great artists of photojournalism but also young talents.
In addition to exhibitions, the center has developed a dense event program to decipher current events as well as a whole range of educational activities intended for the general public and in particular young people. Geopolis has also been offering radio programs broadcast on Euradio since its launch.
