Feniks: Reconstructing Flanders Fields

Exhibition
Ieper

Flanders Fields arises from its ashes
Post-war reconstruction dominated Belgian society for many years. From Leuven to Passchendaele, from Ypres to Liège, wartime activities had left their traces. The recovery was the work of man. While some Belgians never came back, most of them returned and moved on with their lives. The result of their labor is still visible in today’s landscape.

Feniks: Reconstructing Flanders Fields
Unique photographs from the Ypres brothers Maurice and Robert Antony report how ruined cities and ghost towns recovered. On the other hand, visitors and inhabitants had their own individual experiences. The recovery of every house and every piece of land was accompanied with feelings of joy, but also with suffering and danger. The recovery was mostly the result of the vigour and entrepreneurship of the local population. The international beau monde never missed an opportunity to stress their administration for the recovered beauty of Belgium’s “new” towns and cities.
