Made in Belgium combines the work of photographer Harry Gruyaert and writer Hugo Claus. Both of them try to express through their work the ambivalent feeling they have towards their country, wavering between love and hate.
After some time away, Harry Gruyaert decided to return to his homeland. He then started to document his surroundings, the beauty but also the mundane. Aimed at avoiding yielding to melancholy, he discarded black and white photography and chose the realism of bright colors. The result is a fascinating insight into Belgium during the 70s, hesitating between tradition and modernity.
