Terrorists and Perpetrators of Genocide : a Comparison

Symposium "Francis I and Artists of the North (1515-1547)"
As an extention of the events of 2015 celebrating the 500th anniversary of the accession of Francis I (1 January 1515) and the victory at Marignano (13-14 September 1515), the symposium will focus on the ties between the 'grand roy Françoys' and the North. Whereas the exchanges between Francis I and Italy have attracted much attention, the King’s relations with the old Southern Netherlands, as rich and complex, have not been carefully studied. The symposium 'Francis I and Artists of the North (1515-1547)' aims to fill this gap by considering the interest of the King of France in artists and musicians from the old Southern Netherlands and their works.

New space ! Gao Xingjian. The awakening of consciousness
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium welcome six monumental works by Gao Xingjian, especially created for the room they are displayed in. In his 'awakenings of consciousness', the artist invites the wanderer to cross the image and to encounter, beyond the ink, the idea itself in its existential nudity… a space where the museums (re)devote themselves to contemplation.

Djéhoutyhotep: 100 ans de fouilles en Égypte
À l’occasion du centenaire de l’expédition de Reisner en 1915, les égyptologues de la KULeuven ont eu l’idée de mettre sur pied une exposition unique au Musée du Cinquantenaire à Bruxelles. L’objectif de cette exposition est de montrer comment des méthodes innovantes appliquées à de la documentation ancienne peuvent apporter de nouveaux éclairages. Grâce aux technologies digitales, il est ainsi désormais possible de réunir des fragments découverts endommagés et éparpillés au sein de reconstructions virtuelles. En projetant des images satellitaires actuelles sur de vieux plans, il est possible de visualiser le paysage et l’environnement du passé, tandis que d’anciennes photos permettent d’imaginer le paysage égyptien tel qu’il était avant la construction du barrage d’Assouan.
Djehoetihotep: 100 jaar opgravingen in Egypte
Naar aanleiding van het jubileum van de expeditie van Reisner in 1915 werden de egyptologen van de KU Leuven geïnspireerd om een unieke tentoonstelling op poten te zetten in het Jubelparkmuseum in Brussel. Het doel van deze tentoonstelling is te tonen hoe innovatieve methodes, toegepast op oude documentatie, kunnen bijdragen tot nieuwe inzichten. Digitale technieken maken het bijvoorbeeld mogelijk beschadigde en verspreid geraakte fragmenten in virtuele reconstructies terug samen te brengen. Door huidige satellietbeelden op oud kaartmateriaal te projecteren, kunnen we bovendien ook het landschap en de leefomgeving van het verleden visualiseren, en aan de hand van oude foto’s kan een beeld opgeroepen worden van het Egyptische landschap zoals het eruitzag voor de bouw van de Aswandam.

Sarcophagi Under the stars of Nut
Eternity! To live once more just like the god of the afterlife Osiris, to rise again like the sun that is born from the womb of Nut, the godess of the sky... The Ancient Egyptians had high expectations of life after death!
This fall, come to the Cinquantenaire Museum and discover the secrets of the Egyptian sarcophagi as well as the masterpieces of the Museum, including coffins, death masks and embalmed cats, many never shown before. You can also witness an expert Italian restoration team at work as they one by one restore the coffins of the Theban priests that were discovered in 1891 inthe Second Cache of Deir el-Bahari.

WoW – Wonders of Wildlife
Whether running, jumping or hunting, movement in nature is often powerful, precise, and wild. In WoW – Wonders of Wildlife, a herd of ibexes leap from rock to rock; two rival males confront each other; a wolf chases wild boar; a tiger runs majestically and lions hunt fleeing zebras.
Through our amazing freeze frames you can get up close and personal with sights you might have previously only seen in nature documentaries on TV. These acrobatic installations- some displays involve whole groups of several specimens balance on a single paw or tail!- are more than just specimens; they are works of art made by taxidermists. Taxidermy is a unique field that requires the knowledge and precision of a scientist with creativity and an artist’s eye for detail.
In this exhibition, the spectacular panoramas highlight a range of topics including animal behaviour, biomechanics and species and landscape conservation, through videos, objects, and interactive activities set into detailed displays.

Andres Serrano
One of the most important retrospective exhibitions devoted to the work of American photographer Andres Serrano will open on March 18, 2016. In addition to Serrano’s powerful - sometimes violent – themes, the exhibition also addresses the problems of art vandalism and censorship. Simultaneously in the streets of Brussels, the RMFAB will be showing his new series “Denizens of Brussels” (portraits of the homeless).
