In the period 2018-2020 the Centre for Fine Arts is introducing a city-wide project based around the work of a few Flemish Masters (including Theodoor van Loon, Bernard van Orley and the Flemish Primitives.

They lived and worked in Brussels and their art was firmly rooted in the political and religious reality of their day.

These exhibitions bring the visitor into contact with the oeuvre of a few less familiar artists whose work is well worth rediscovering. At the same time we look back over 300 years, during which the current visual culture came into being and gained ground. These images were also contested, their status called into question. The Iconoclastic Fury of 1566 wanted to bring an end to idolatry. Parallel to the main exhibitions BOZAR will further examine the power of the image, how it can come into being and be destroyed – even in this day and age.

For this project BOZAR LAB is launching a first open call to innovative firms, start-ups, artists and researchers. It challenges them to join BOZAR staff in thinking about how new technologies can strengthen the experience of these exhibitions. This must result in concrete applications. Everyone with a first innovative idea can apply!
