April is going to be a very busy month for BOZAR with a lot of art work from all the corners of Europe:
1) Nautilus – Navigating Greece
An exposition which examines the intimate relationship between the Greeks and the Mediterranean Sea trough the ages. With the sea as connecting thread, the exhibition highlights the interplay between nature, culture, identity, adventure, politics, religion and most of all mobility in all its forms, the exposition will be going on until the end of April.
2) Dakira & Miras
Also starting this month is Dakira and Miras, which is a voyaging exhibition treating personal stories of Turkish and Moroccan immigration since 50 years in Europe. Really worth a visit!
3) BOZAR Night
The BOZAR Night will be back as well for another edition this year. The museum will be full of exhibitions which will be set up on a background of electric music. The expositions Zurbarán, Michaël Borremans and No Country for Young Men will also be accessible for this special occasion. Don’t miss this great event if you are a fan of clubbing and an art lover!

Childhood memories & travel and other stories were the inspiration of this photo exhibition. Three young artists went looking for inhabitants of Brussels, whose personal history was linked to immigration. The stories that they collected are translated into pictures. All these small fragments of these stories will naturally make you go through your own memory lane. This very touching exhibition will be displayed at the Botanique together with another exhibition “Nass Belgica – The Moroccan immigration in Belgium” showcased in the botanical gardens of the Botanique.
Currently until the 27th of April
Rue Royale 250
For more information:
‘I Wish I had a River’, an exhibition featuring works by Volkan Diyaroglu, Charlotte Schleiffert (courtesy Annie Gentils Gallery), Roland Bouvier and Marcin Dudek. A real cultural melting pot! They all have one thing in common which is that they excel at creating space to breath and balancing personal instinct with the onslaught of external influences, information and quickly conceived opinions that are increasingly difficult to avoid. This more than creative exhibition is really worth a visit!

4th of April until the 25th of Mai
Bozar is hosting the exhibition “Cristina Iglesias”, a good reason to visit our city! In Belgium she is famous for her Deep Fountain, located outside the entrance to the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Iglesias is known to explore sculptures as an object in relation to space and its surroundings. Her sculptures mainly consist of iron, alabaster, stained glass, and textiles, and they offer scope for reflection and invite viewers to question their taken-for-granted relationship with nature.
Until the 25th of May
