As a continuation of his Cher Pourquoi Pas? project – and on the occasion of the exhibition Ravaged at Museum M -, Augustijnen went back once more to the archives to look upon the writings of the journalist Pierre Davister. Searching for images of the destruction of the first monument dedicated to Patrice Lumumba in Stanleyville, Appele-moi Pierre comme je t’appelle Joseph draws deeper onto the manipulations of this devilish journalist and his involvement in the Congolese crisis.
