Belgian art is in full swing in the early 20th century. Along with
World War I, the occupation, the horror of battlefields and the exile of more
than a million Belgians have a significant impact on the country’s artistic
production. Nobody is indifferent to the life-altering experiences related to
this war; while being a consolidation of style for some, they constitute a
revolution for others.

The exhibition 14-18. Rupture or Continuity? delves into the vast collection of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and explores changes and constants of Belgian Art between 1910-1925. Artists and artistic movements with a significant influence, like Constant Permeke’s Expressionism, Jules Schmalzigaug’s Futurism, or even Jozef Peeters’ Pure Plastic,  are shown side by side in this display, immersing the visitor in an era of artistic and political upheaval.

Digital Experience, the brand new multimedia cylinder, provides an interactive context for the works of art on display. The innovating device offers a global vision of Belgian artistic creation in the days of World War I, via historic documents, videos, audio recordings and artwork reproductions.

THE POWER OF THE AVANT-GARDE
NOW AND THEN
29 SEPTEMBER 2016 — 22 JANUARI 2017
 
Avant-garde is een begrip uit de oorlogvoering én de kunst.
Avant-garde floreert in samenlevingen in volle verandering. Kunstenaars
voorvoelen maatschappelijke revoluties. In de beeldende kunst situeren we de
hoogdagen van de avant-garde tussen 1895 en 1920, met de Eerste Wereldoorlog
als internationale breuklijn. Hoe relevant is die baanbrekende kunst nog? Vijftien toonaangevende hedendaagse kunstenaars gaan de dialoog aan met collega’s
uit de historische avant-garde, van Ensor en Munch tot de nieuwe bewegingen
net na de oorlog. Kunstenaars van nu voelen vaak een nauwe verwantschap met
specifieke avantgardekunstwerken. Hun keuze en de dialoog met eigen werk doen
je met andere ogen kijken naar ijkpunten uit de moderne kunst. De kracht
van de avant-garde is nog lang niet uitgewerkt.
