Since 2006 Bonom became a living legend in Brussels, by terrorizing building of any kind with big graffiti drawings. After being arrested a few years ago by the police we had his face and real name Vincent Glowinski and choose to continue with his true name and starts creating his works on stages instead of the streets. But today a new chapter begins. We all know him for his great graffiti skills but as it turns out he has also some incredible dance skills. His dances moves will be projected on the ceiling registered with a camera technique we call human brush-camera. This will make his dance movement transform in a glowing slow motion show, it’s really amazing.
13th and 14th of March and 4th of April

For the first time, ING Belgium presents an exhibition at its Brussels Cultural Centre, entirely dedicated to the pointillist portrait called: TO THE POINT! The Neo-Impressionist Portrait was a movement that revolutionized Western painting at the end of the nineteenth century. Taking theories of colour and light as their starting point, French painters transmitted their progressive ideas to their Belgian colleagues. A new painting technique was born and developed rapidly in Belgium. Have a look at this expo and discover masterpieces influenced by the movement’s leader, Georges Seurat, including paintings and drawings by French artists Paul Signac, Lucien Pissarro and Achille Laugé as well as Belgian practitioners Henry Van de Velde, Georges Lemmen, George Morren and Théo Van Rysselberghe. Check the website, get some tickets, be amazed by all those little dots and enjoy your visit POINT

In the context of the Greek presidency of the Council of the European Union, BOZAR and CINEMATEK are teaming up for a never seen before film festival celebrating the new Greek cinema of the last five years. A financial crisis doesn’t stop the creative Greek film makers. It is quite the opposite. It started off with Giorgos Lanthimos who directed Dogtooth (2009) and Athina Tsangari’s Attenberg (2010) and these two fantastic directors created at the same time a new wave. These two movies have had a great influence on a new generation of directors.
For this event the BOZAR will be screening 8 movies never shown before in Belgium and the directors of most of the movies will be present as well. The series will be rounded off by a master class given by the renowned film critic Michel Demopoulos, in which he will make the connection between the Greek cinema of the last five years and of the past.
From now until 20th of March
