Miss Interdépendances was created especially for the Lubumbashi Biennale and based on archival documents from one of the historical founders of the Association des Mulâtres et gens de couleurs de Belgique (AMB,  ‘Association of Mulatto and coloured people of Belgium’). This organization was the first in Belgium to promote the recognition of the status and fate of the 20,000 children born out of forbidden colonial love. The name AMB was recently taken over by an organization created as part of the follow-up of the political debate at the Belgian federal level.
