    Pieter Bruegel’s masterpieces may be known worldwide, but they contain innumerable little details with their own mysteries. Both in situ at the exhibition and online, this project offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in Bruegel’s paintings, exploring them and learning what the experts have discovered. As we approach the 450th anniversary of the painter’s death in 1569, a number of international museums have collaborated on this innovative approach.

    Vandercam, who then lives in Albisola in Italy, creates a multitude of works with writers in the pure CoBRa tradition. During a trip to Denmark in 1961, he discovers Tollund Man, which brings him back to a brutal and libertarian figuration. Hugo Claus follows the work of the painter and writes a poem that is published in 1963 on the occasion of an exhibition of Vandercam in Rotterdam. The following year, the collaboration continues with a theme that can be regarded as the synthesis of the conducted research. The comrades switch roles: Claus paints, Vandercam writes. The Raft of the Medusa refers to a news fact that Géricault transcended in his large painting of 1818-1819: shipwreck, reckonings, and cannibalism make the raft a concentrate of inhumanity which refers directly to the cruelty of the original sacrifice embodied by Tollund Man. Through the series of five paintings realised in a form of lyrical high, Claus and Vandercam bear witness to the permanence of both an insurrectional and libertarian CoBRa spirit. *Exhibition accessible with a ticket for the collections

    Berlin Alexanderplatz, roman d’Alfred Döblin paru en 1929, à Berlin, nous plonge dans la vie du petit peuple des prostituées et des malfrats et nous fait sentir les fracas d’une métropole moderne qui broie ceux qui se perdent dans sa nuit. Le Poisson Mouillé, intrigue policière haletante à souhait est écrite en 2011 par Volker Kutscher, germaniste, historien et ancien journaliste et se déroule en 1929 à Berlin, sous la république de Weimar.

    Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium offers a vast panorama of his work and emphasizes its multidisciplinary aspect. Indeed, Wim Delvoye's art is often the result of a combination of craftsmanship and the most sophisticated industrial manufacturing techniques. Anchored in the contemporary world, Wim Delvoye studies the past and contemplates the future. In a new way, the exhibition brings together his creations with masterpieces from the RMFAB's collection of ancient art. In addition, recent works, presented to the public for the first time, testify to the artist's attentive view of the changes taking place in our hyper-connected societies, where lines between reality and virtual worlds are increasingly blurry. His reputation has long since passed the boarders of his homeland, and in recent years he carried out numerous exhibitions in countries as diverse as Canada, Azerbaijan, Russia, Luxembourg or even Iran. The exhibition ticket includes access to the Old Masters Museum. The exhibition is free for -19 years old (except groups) Copyrights: Tabriz (Tapisdermy ; 2010) ; Wim Delwoye © with the courtesy of the artist
