Rediscover the history of Belgian art through a 100 works, the favourites from the heart by Claude Blondeel. The columnist, writer and art critic, at the origin of this jolly ‘Bazaar’, will guide you through his imaginary museum.
Remembering Arthur Rimbaud and his famous “One must be absolutely modern”,Blondeel decided with a whiff of “wild eclecticism”, so dear to him, to start his story of Belgian art with Félicien Rops. This very particular view, both sensitive and scholarly, of the history of art, includes the visual arts, film, photography, video, fashion, comics and advertising.
In his “Belgian Bazaar”, Alechinsky and De Bruyckere, Claus and Simenon, Gal and Geluck, Horta and van de Velde, Arno and Sax, Wéry and Tuerlinckx, Béjart and Storck, Permeke and Spillaert, la Monnaie and the Archiduc, … will be happily surprised of this get-together!
