    The three federal cultural institutions are boosting their collaboration

    In response to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Belgian National Orchestra, BOZAR and La Monnaie have decided to step up their cooperation, which began four years ago. Their shared objective is to optimise the use of resources, to continue to offer a high-quality artistic programme, and to strengthen relationships. The three institutions are also working on a joint approach to implement the health measures put in place by the government.

  • Christian Kieckens (1951-2020)

    Architect Christian Kieckens is no longer with us. To him, architecture was not so much a discipline as an all-encompassing way of understanding the world and giving it form and meaning.
