Impressions from the photo exhibit ‘The Forgotten Animal’ in Bruges

Anyone who’s going from the station in Bruges to ‘t Zand in the coming week cannot miss this. There are about a dozen big bords with a photo on each side of a ‘forgotten’ animal in the food industry, with next to each photo a description of the fate of the animal. The photo exhibit is originally made by the Dutch organisations Varkens in Noodย (Pigs in distress) and Dier en Rechtย (Animal & Law) and we already saw it in Amsterdam in 2013 (see our impression on our Dutch blogย here). At that point, we wrote ‘Would this be possible on the Burg in Bruges or next to theย Saint-Baafscathedral in Ghent?’. And now the exhibition is actually in Belgium, and in Bruges even! Fantastic! ๐Ÿ™‚ The exhibit uses the same images as the ones that were used in the Netherlands, but the texts are adapted to the Belgianย context. The Forgotten Animal is brought to Bruges by a cooperation of different organisations*, and can be seen for a week in theย Albertpark. ย
