Expo Vive Labeur - Hail to work. China in Poperinge 1917-2017

Exhibition
Poperinge

The first Chinese labourers arrive in Poperinge during the summer of 1917. They work for the CLC, Chinese Labour Corps, a working corps of the British Army. The Chinese labourers stay until 1920. They live in separate camps and they maintain their own rituals. The exhibition “Vive Labeur – Hail to the work” tells the story of the Chinese during WWI. Was it hard labour? How did they socialize with the local people? Did they celebrate Chinese New Year? The WWI Chinese story inspires contemporary artists. Two famous Belgian photographers, Stephan Vanfleteren and Sanne Dewilde go back to the roots of the Chinese labourers. They explore the China region where they came from. This results in a fascinating photographic account. Reporter Lieselotte Vandamme stays in the Poperinge region and tries to find the legacy of the Chinese labourers. She presents a documentary film.
