Brussels [ENA] 2019 is Bruegel Year and Brussels will be the centre of activity. On Saturday 6 April, the exhibition ‘Beyond Bruegel’ will be opened to the general public in the monumental Palais de la Dynastie. It’s an innovative art experience with the works of the Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

In various rooms, visitors can explore the style and oeuvre of the painter, and will then be immersed in a 360-degree projection that's like stepping into the great master’s extraordinary world. His artworks seem to come to life all around you as you wander through the landscapes that inspired him. The exhibition ends up at Plein Publiek, where you can drink Duvel on tap along with hip, updated versions of classic Flemish cuisine from the chef.

Ben Weyts, Flemish Minister for Tourism: “Via Tourism Flanders, I am investing 300,000 euros in this unique experience. It’s a low-threshold exhibition that will fascinate a wide audience: whether you're an amateur or an authority, from Flanders or Florida, aged 1 to 101. With the entire Flemish Masters programme around Bruegel, Rubens and Van Eyck, we aim to attract 3 million visitors from around the globe to Flanders.”

Peter De Wilde, CEO Tourism Flanders: “Each one of the Flemish Masters projects is dear to our hearts and they therefore reflect the DNA of our tourism destination. That also means that they will speak to the hearts and minds of just the type of visitors that we love to welcome to the world of tourism in Flanders. These are people from all around the world who are looking for cultural added value: visitors who take time to truly enjoy the multifaceted beauty that Flanders has to offer.”

Beyond Bruegel in figures - 4 months is how long it took to renovate and equip the disused Palais de la Dynastie - 30 powerful projectors - 5 soundscapes combining music and images - 90 days of art historical research - 160 hours of advice from Bruegel experts The exhibition runs through January 2020 and makes the perfect (family) daytrip. Beyond Bruegel is not only an original activity for the kids, it's an especially child-friendly exhibition. Great for families, but also for teachers, schools and youth organisations.
