The Tour Leopold II is pseudo-touristic guide that contextualizes and challenges the colonial heritage found in the public space of Brussels. The work takes as a premise that monuments, buildings, parks and venues are visual language that articulate a positive narrative of colonialism. The guide engages with this question and intervenes in the experience of the public space of the city.
