More Stuff: 'Timbuktu Rennaisance' at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels
BOZAR presents an exhibition of manuscripts of inestimable cultural value from Timbuktu (Mali). Several centuries old, they contain learning of many kinds.  Their texts, dealing with science, politics, and law, are startlingly modern.

"Tragedies are caused by differences and by a lack of tolerance. Glory be to Him who creates greatness out of difference and lets peace and reconciliation reign," they teach us.


These historic documents from Timbuktu are accompanied by sounds and images from the city today, underlining the lasting nature of its heritage.

The exhibition will run until Feb. 22. 2015.
