In the multimedia project 'In many hands' twenty-five people shine their light on the Congolese collection of the city of Antwerp.

The narrators are inhabitants of the Congolese capital Kinshasa, citizens of Antwerp and people with a connection to the city by the Scheldt. The MAS engages in a dialogue with them about the various meanings of the Congolese collection, and the importance of a plurality of voices. They look at the highlights from different angles.

The objects raise numerous questions. What do they mean? What feelings do they evoke? Where do they belong?
