FEAST OF FOOLS – GROUPS SHOW

KASTEEL VAN GAASBEEK, PAJOTTENLAND, BELGIUMFrom 7/04/2019 to 28/07/2019

Pieter Bruegel is often seen as the embodiment of Flemish identity. Why has that been so since the revival of his work around 1900? How has he grown to become an icon, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a huge cliché? In the exhibition ‘Feast of Fools. Bruegel Rediscovered’ the visitor becomes acquainted with a series of key works by modern masters and creations by contemporary artists who ‘have a thing for Bruegel’. They latch onto his themes, reinterpret them, quote him … and thus demonstrate that his work has lost none of its relevance.
