  • Fascinating book by Jan Rosseel on the 'Gang of Nivelles'

    A series of bloody attacks on Belgian supermarkets came to an end in the autumn of 1985. The attacks, perpetrated by a gang known in English as the ‘Gang of Nivelles’ and in Dutch as the ‘Bende van Nijvel’ left 28 people dead. The father of Jan Rosseel (b. 1979) was one of them.

    Despite extensive police inquiries, a detailed dossier, recovered evidence and witness accounts, the assailants have never been caught and the attacks remain unsolved. This violent period is seen as one of the darkest pages in Belgian history. Today, almost thirty years later, the police investigation is still officially open.

    This book is Jan Rosseel’s personal quest for the Gang of Nivelles, made up of photographs and documents, memories and references.

    Rosseel studied documentary photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, in the Netherlands, and the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Aarhus, Denmark. He has been nominated for the Steenbergen Stipendium photography prize and the Dutch Doc Award, and won the Photo Academy Award (de Volkskrant newspaper). His work has been exhibited widely, including at the FOAM photography museum in Amsterdam and the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam, Atelier Néerlandais in Paris and Eastwing Gallery in Dubai, and has appeared in several publications, including Le Monde, De Standaard, Volkskrant Magazine and Vrij Nederland.

    The book accompanies the eponymous exhibition in the Antwerp FotoMuseum from 26 June until 4 October 2015.
