Centuries-old paintings meet technology

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 in which the works of the Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder are enlarged to become immersive projections. 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.
