The First World War brought people from five continents to support the Allies on the Western Front. Many came from colonial territories in the British and French empires; the largest continents were Indian and Chinese.
Often marred by racism, discrimination and xenophobia both inside and outside the military command, the service was also lightened by moving and enduring 'human' social relationships. These wartime experiences enhanced Asian political awareness and self-confidence, and stimulated anti-imperialist and nationalist feelings.
Dendooven's work draws on many original and previously unknown sources, including writings in French, German, Flemish and Chinese, but also other cultural products such as photographs, songs and trench art.
