Renaissance: A new artistic and discursive platform (EN)

15 12 2017 09:30 12:30

Centrale for Contemporary Art, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Studio Luc Tuymans, WIELS and BOZAR launch a new platform as a recurring artistic event in the city of Brussels, the capital of Belgium and Europe, as of 2019-2020.

Renaissance Une nouvelle plate forme artistique et discursive

Keenly aware of the history of other large-scale recurring art events, the partners organize an international symposium focused on the development of these manifestations. The symposium will openly propose Brussels as the venue for the development of this radically innovative new platform.

This event is organized in collaboration with UNESCO as part of their broader investigation on culture and its impact on the future of urban environment.
