POOR BRUSSELS, RICH IMAGE
The capital of Europe is changing at lightning speed. The population is growing noticeably. Unemployment and poverty are rising alarmingly. The car is the tyrant of the city. Brussels was bilingual for decades, Brussels has been multicultural for half a century. That too has changed. Brussels is now the city of hyper-diversity. The people of Brussels try every day to live together in a civilized matter.
Filip Van Zandycke and Geert van Istendael present the lecture Arm Brussel / Rijk Beeld: a Brussels story based on pictures published in the book "Arm Brussel" by Geert van Istendael. A tour along 8 different locations: from the Parc Ossegem/Atomium, along Victor Hugo and L.P. Boon, to the Parc du Cinquantenaire, in the Parc du Warande and at Baron Horta, at the Palais de Justice, to the Abattoir and to Het Goudblommeke in Papier / La Fleur en Papier Doré.
A mapped out narrated tour of the Brussels Region. The walk will be available in Dutch.
