The “Commune” is the first revolution that has been extensively photographed: ruins caused by the bombings of the German and French armies, the actions of the rebels (such as taking down the “Colonne Vendôme”, with the statue of Napoleon on top), portraits of artists such as the painter Gustave Courbet (who was president of the Cultural Board during the Commune) and also group portraits of the rebels at the city hall and on top of the barricades.
Photographs, assemblages and collages. Living and working were one big adventure for Leo Dohmen (1929-1999). The best pupil in the class, he went on to become head of a laboratory at the ultra-Catholic firm Gevaert in Mortsel. But he led a double life.
