DIGICOLJUST - Colonial Violence, Subaltern Agency and Shared Archival Heritage: A Digital Platform of Colonial Judiciary Sources
The research project 'DIGICOLJUST - Colonial Violence, Subaltern Agency and Shared Archival Heritage: A Digital Platform of Colonial Judiciary Sources' has launched its blog.
DIGICOLJUST is a two-year (2020-2022) digitizing and research program led by a team of historians and archivists from the State Archives of Belgium (AGR/ARA), the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The project starts from a poorly-known archival collection of fundamental significance for the history of colonial violence and of African agency under Belgian colonialism: the archives of the trial records of the military tribunals of the Congo Free State (1885-1908) and of the Belgian Congo (1908-1960). At the crossroad of heritage science, digital humanities and scholarly expertise, DIGICOLJUST aims to make a significant part of this archival collection accessible to researchers and citizens and to explore new historical questions about colonial repression. DIGICOLJUST's blog will follow the development of the project and the challenges it raised i.a. about the contested heritage of displaced Belgian public colonial archives, about our understanding of colonial violence or about the topicality of the history of military justice in the light of current international debates about soldiers' impunity in present-day Central African contexts.

Facing Van Eyck. The Miracle of Detail
Facing Van Eyck. The Miracle of Detail looks at Jan van Eyck's extraordinary works through a contemporary lens. Thanks to pioneering digital techniques and new scientific research at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), you can get closer to Van Eyck and his secrets than ever before. Take an immersive dive into Van Eyck's pictorial microcosmos by zooming in on landscapes, architecture, textiles, human figures and everyday objects, and unveil fascinating details hardly visible to the naked eye. Benjamin Glorieux composed a Van Eyck-inspired piece especially for the exhibition - a sensory experience that fascinates both the eye and the ear.
A richly illustrated film focuses on Jan van Eyck's devotional images and links him to the Byzantine icon. By delving deeper into the reception and appropriation of Byzantine models in Van Eyck's work the film explores the religious and artistic exchanges between East and West in the 15th century.
A new way of looking at Jan van Eyck's oeuvre through 20 digitized works that show you the radicality and freshness of his fascinating visual language!
This exhibition fits into the framework of the BELSPO BRAIN-be projects "VERONA" and "ESIX"

SURA – Unlocking the Photographic Archives of the Pioneering Years of Egyptology at the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels
The research project 'SURA – Unlocking the Photographic Archives of the Pioneering Years of Egyptology at the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels' has launched its website.
SURA is a joint project (2020–2022) between the Royal Museums of Art and History (RMAH) and the Department of Archaeology of KU Leuven and will valorise a historical collection of ca. 7000 glass plate negatives kept in the famous Egyptological library of the RMAH. These images date to the first half of the 20th century and document the pioneering years of Egyptology in Belgium from the perspective of Jean Capart, first curator of the Egyptian department of the RMAH and founding father of Belgian Egyptology, and his collaborators. The archaeological sites where the RMAH excavated, and from which objects entered into the museum's collection, are featured among these glass negatives, as are photographs of sites and excavations by other teams. Images of objects in various museum collections worldwide, of the Egyptian landscape, flora, and population are part of the collection as well.
