The 2020-2021 season is all about Art and Well-being for BOZAR, and it rests on a broad programme of exhibitions, concerts, performances, debates and workshops. Art is good for you. It is good for your mental, physical and social wellbeing. The creation and experience of art offers more than beauty, solace and joy in times of crisis and pandemic. It is a basic human need. From the arts we learn how to cope with the human condition, the pain of being (alone). They connect us, give us inner strength, help us recalibrate and explore the boundaries and give us a glimpse of another, better world (Gallery of the Futures). The artist's inner world is forever bridging the gap to the turbulent world outside. This is true of the artist/painter in his studio (Philippe Vandenberg. Molenbeek), the revolutionary composer at his writing desk (Hotel Beethoven) and dancers in all their raw, intuitive expressiveness (Danser brut). Does art make us better? It certainly does! A recent report by the World Health Organisation, based on over three thousand studies, puts this well beyond doubt. Art is good for your health. It prevents, and it cures. Are you ready for a healthy dose of Art & Well-being at BOZAR?
