VUMBI is a narrative map about the colonization of Congo―nowadays Democratic Republic of Congo―by Belgium, in the passage of the nineteenth to the twentieth century.
Its purpose is to remember the Holocaust carried out by the obsession of King Leopold II with the Congolese resources. The ivory and rubber fever provoked the destruction of villages and a violent system of forced labor was implemented, bringing death and disease to millions of people.
The resistance to all this is represented by Twa Mwe, a Kwango chief. Other Congolese, such as Nzanzu or Kandolo, would rise up against the injustice, leading rebellions in the “État indépendant du Congo”
