Brussels Centre for Fine Arts: architecture and history – a decolonial perspective (fully booked)

© Alfred de Ville de Goyet

In 1913, the government decided to build “a temple devoted to music and the arts”. Construction work on the Art Deco building, designed by Belgian architect Victor Horta, started after the First World War.

The architecturally monumental yet discreet Brussels Centre for Fine Arts (Bozar), located on the Coudenberg hill, is now a high temple of culture in Belgium.

During these tours, guides will explain the complex history of the building and the institution, tying it in with Belgium’s colonial past.

In cooperation with Bozar.
