The colours of liberation
as told by the tapestry
The Senate

A hundred years ago, on 22 November 1918, King Albert I entered liberated Brussels. The Senate commemorates this event through an exhibition in its stately Reading Room. What catches the eye is a unique tapestry of the Senate, Le retour victorieux du Roi Albert à la tête de ses troupes à Bruxelles le 22 novembre 1918 ("King Albert returns triumphant at the head of his troops, Brussels, 22 November 1918") commissioned in 1934 to Anto Carte.

Chris Marker
Memories of the Future
BOZAR

Exhibition that allows you to travel into the unique world of Chris Marker (1921-2012), and his impressive archives.

Alain Resnais (french director, one of the representatives of Nouvelle Vague) described him as a prototype man of the Twentieth Century, an extremely versatile artist and cosmopolitan.

Collections invisibles
Musée royal de Mariemont

The Museum takes artworks out of its reserves that are normally invisible to visitors. As storytelling supports, they evoke the history of the Museum and its collection, but also its museography. The scenography invites you to experience an unforgettable visit in the dark. To look, to glimpse, to recognize, to discern...
