Discover the history of the Brussels Centre for Fine Arts, a major cultural venue and architectural masterpiece by Victor Horta, open since 1928.

The Building

The design and construction of the Centre for Fine Arts were a challenge for Belgian architecture in the early 20th century.


Bozar, the Centre for Fine Arts’ cultural project, offers a dynamic and diversified cultural programme of concerts and exhibitions: a multidisciplinary approach in which debates, theatre, cinema, literature and other disciplines meet to reflect on the connections between art and society.


The Centre for Fine Arts aims to be a European cultural centre, anchored in the 21st century, with a novel and innovative view of society, a laboratory of ideas attuned to society’s current and future challenges. In the coming decade, Bozar aims to embody change, and contribute to seven major and evolving societal challenges.
