Hey, that's my money!

Mine the Gap

Mines are everywhere, it’s just that we don’t always see them. Twenty-five years ago, the last coal mine closed in Belgium, but in Asia, South America, Africa and Eastern Europe, the mining industry is still alive and kicking. So many of the materials that we use every day come from somewhere under the ground. Fossil fuels, iron, gold and copper are all acquired by way of mining. Your smart phone? You would have to search long and hard to find any part of it that is not connected to mining. Our money? Invested in mining.

This brochure is published in the framework of the Mine the Gap festival at the Beursschouwburg, 8 - 11 February 2018.
