What did Brussels look like 50 years ago? From June to September BOZAR will be taking you back in time with an exhibition about the Plaizier publishing house. Since 1977 this Brussels publishing house has built up an image library including vintage postcards, prints, calendars and books. Architectural gems and urban transformations are all portrayed, together with items that illustrate the resolute path pursued by the publishing couple Wijnand and Mieke Plaizier. Their love for the Belgian capital is evident from every image. In addition to their purely documentary value, the photographs also bear witness to the way in which people remember and appreciate Brussels and give form to the collective memory.
