mini artventure in Brussels ~ Magritte museum
The Musée Magritte Museum, located in the heart of Brussels, brings together the world's largest collection of the renowned surrealist artist René Magritte: 230 works and archives are displayed. The multidisciplinary space houses paintings, gouaches, drawings, sculptures and painted objects, as well as advertising posters, musical scores, photographs and films. The Museum also has the most important collection from the artist’s "vache" period.
on the museum: ***
the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, host a prestigious collection of 20.000 artworks. great to re-discover, but the scenography is oldfashioned and digital support is quasi non existing. the hardest one yet. scusi. Brussels, capital of Europe and today's hellhole of Europe, had it all. due to corrupt (mostly red) politicians the remains of a great past have either rotten away or have simply lost their glamour. due to a major lack of Belgian / Brussels cultural policy, they have got no money left to invest in our cultural heritage. we believe that musea must look to the future to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world. bottom line: what will the politicians undertake to make musea attractive again?
