Discover the creativity of European and Asian artists at the ASEM Cultural Festival held at the Centre of Fine Arts – BOZAR – alongside the 12th ASEM Summit in Brussels. During the two-week festival from 18 to 30 October, audiences will enjoy performances, exhibitions and conversations that revolve around two themes: ‘connectivity’ and ‘heritage’. The opening event features a specially commissioned digital and music performance under the artistic direction of renowned Belgian visual artist Honoré δ’O. A public forum brings together two leading architects from Asia and Europe for a conversation on the topic of architecture and heritage. The eclectic programming will present the perfect opportunity to celebrate the historical connections between Europe and Asia, and will welcome prospects for future cooperation.
With the ASEM Cultural Festival, BOZAR builds bridges between communities through sustained intercultural exchanges and debates, offering new perspectives that challenge existing narratives.
