Emmanuelle Nsunda is a conservator/restorer of works of art and an archaeometer by training. She is also specialized in the study of intangible cultural heritage. The competences gathered during her studies and various professional experiences allow her to relate the material and immaterial dimensions of works of art. Recently, she has opened her field of research by adding a decolonial perspective by questioning the deontology of conservation/restoration and the pedagogy of the arts in Belgian art schools.
In 2017 she launches the project Afrofeminism in progress aiming to create safe spaces for discussion around the experiences of Afrodescendent women and the relations of domination that govern their daily lives. She navigates through various Belgian cultural spaces where she gives workshops and trainings on privileges but also proposes non-mixed workshops for Afrodescendant women.
