From 'patrimoine partagé' to 'whose heritage'?: critical reflections on colonial built heritage in the city of Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Johan Lagae UGent (2010) Remembering, forgetting and city builders. In Re-materialising Cultural Geography p.175-191
abstract
This chapter presents a critical analysis of the built heritage in the city of Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo. It questions the binary structure of the notion "shared heritage/patrimoine partagé" that has emerged in recent debates on built heritage in former colonized territories. By discussing two case studies (the theatre building and the Jewish cemetery), Johan Lagae argues for an approach that on the one hand links the city's urban form to colonial history by relating it to the cosmopolitan society that produced and experienced it, while on the other hand acknowledges how specific urban spaces and buildings are currently being appropriated as "lieux de mémoire" by a variety of agents that do not necessarily (want to) share this heritage
