What attitude is appropriate for Europe to take towards its former colonies? It remains a thorny subject, in Belgium, France and Germany alike. The French art historian Bénédicte Savoy, a member of the Collège de France since 2016, was commissioned by Emmanuel Macron to carry out a controversial study into the restitution of African objects which have been in the collections of European museums since the colonial era. She will give the matter a thorough examination together with art historian and curator Didier Houénoudé from Benin and the director of the Africa Museum in Tervuren.
