Prof dr. Placide Mumbembele (IMNC-UNIKIN, Kinshasa) will talk on the Congolese Kakungu mask recently brought back to the DRC.

On 6 September 2022, Mandela Kaumba Mazanga defends her PhD dissertation at Brussels University. It is the completion of her joint PhD project between UGent and ULB as part of the KongoKing project.

At the occasion of this PhD defense, BantuGent and CARAM co-organize a Meet the PhD Jury event with Prof dr. Placide Mumbembele (IMNC-UNIKIN, Kinshasa), one of the jury members.

He will talk on the Congolese mask that was recently brought back to the DRC as part of the royal mission of Belgium’s King Philippe.
