What you'll do
We will start with a guided tour of the MIMA* (not possible on Monday and Tuesday)** then go for a walk along the canal, passing numerous graffiti, artworks and urban installations. Love to observe how cities grow and develop. Fascinated by the constant transformation and changes. How some people take back possession of the public space. Through an ongoing conversation we will observe, exchange and discuss on how the past has shaped the city and is drawing its future, making us think critically about the nature of urban art and its impact. Passionate collector of object/images/place/encounters, I will share my love for it with you. Let me guide you through an arty experience around Brussel's downtown! * MIMA, Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art, presents the most significant art of its time, and explores a history of culture 2.0. ** Attention, MIMA is not open on Monday's and Tuesday's and will be replaced by a longer tour downtown and along the Canal. The current expo, which is called GET UP STAND UP and goes through the Protest Poster from May 68 - 73 and its influences and parallels with today's social protestations.
