During her research on the artistic history of Brussels, the artist R.H. Quaytman stumbled upon the painter Antoine Wiertz and his personal museum which today is located in the heart of the European district. Today, although Wiertz's oeuvre and his exuberant museum-sanctuary have been forgotten, they form the starting point of Quaytman's research into the possibilities of painting in the context of photography.
Discover the more than 100 plastic plates that reveal Marcel Broodthaers' singular view of the unique work of art and its reproduction.
