As part of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Belgium and the People's Republic of China, Train World, the train museum in Brussels, will organise a major exhibition from April to October 2021. This exhibition tells the surprising and fascinating story of the construction by the Belgians and the French, at the beginning of the 20th century, of the largest railway line in China that was to link Beijing to Hankou (Wuhan).
To give this historical exhibition an extra artistic dimension, two geniuses of the 9th art - François Schuiten and Li Kunwu - are creating original works about the construction of this railway line. Beautiful work on a part of railway history seen and explained by passionate craftsmen and artists.
A 240 page catalogue will be made for this exhibition in French (ISBN 9782505111443) and Dutch (ISBN 9789085586463).
