BRUSSELS, BELGIUM • Palais de beaux-arts • 19 December 2014 - 22 February 2015
The Palais des Beaaux-Arts in Brussels presents an exhibition of manuscripts of inestimable cultural value from Timbuktu (Mali). Several centuries old, they contain learning of many kinds. Their texts, dealing with science, politics, and law, are startlingly modern. "Tragedies are caused by differences and by a lack of tolerance. Glory be to Him who creates greatness out of difference and lets peace and reconciliation reign," they teach us. These historic documents from Timbuktu are accompanied by sounds and images from the city today, underlining the lasting nature of its heritage.

Moreover, a new site-specific installation is currently on view at the Middelheim Museum, Antwerp. Rather than thinking of himself as an artist the French-Algerian artist Kader Attia (b. 1970) considers himself a researcher. His multi-media installations, which often are rooted in history and archival research, explore ideas around identity in a globalised world. Attia’s fascination for identity and the exchanges.
