The coal preparation plant is the beating heart of the former coal mine in Beringen. Finding a new destination for this unique piece of industrial heritage is an enormous and difficult challenge.

In this exhibition, organised by Het Vervolg vzw, an independent association specialised in local and regional development, national and international photographers focus on the conservation and repurposing of this heritage. They'll fuel the debate with more than 120 photographs of coal preparation plants in Belgium and abroad. What does the future bring for the coal preparation plant?
