Bozart Electronic Arts Festival September 25 – 27 2014

After just two editions, the BOZAR Electronic Arts Festival (BEAF) is already a reference for lovers of the electronic arts. BEAF attracts both specialists and the general public with artists who exploit the lightning pace of technological developments in order to express their ideas. In the unique setting of the Centre for Fine Arts, we mix music, performances, installations, workshops and conferences into a fascinating whole.
You will become acquainted with world-famous names, and you are bound to come across new discoveries too. For example, the fragile tones of Nils Frahm, the almost physical sound castles of Ben Frost or the intense dark ambient of Mondkopf, and the absolutely unique, whirlwind style of Fuck Buttons. From the start, you are immersed in a festive mood thanks to the sounds of electronic prodigy Max Cooper or the surprising Young Echo collective. You can also view art work by Quayola, Felix Luque Sánchez or renowned architect Luc Deleu.
We also ask the question whether scientists, researchers and artists can mean something to each other. A study commissioned by the European Commission shows for the first time the finest examples hereof in a fascinating series of presentations. In the Centre for Fine Arts, a surprising and intense three-day event packed with electronic arts awaits you.CONCERTS & PERFORMANCES:

As sweet as it gets – Borremans at Bozart Brussels

I finally decided to get on my feet and visit the Borremans retrospective at Bozart in Brussels.

The only thing I can say is : and so should you!

Who is Borremans

One warning though: go early or midweek or at an exceptional hour, because this expo is beginning to break all the visitor records since the start of Bozart. But still this is a must see.

And if you can combine this expo with this one: Zurbaran, master of Spain’s Golden age. These paintings are related in a way. They make a hell of a duo.

Who is Zurbaran

Well done, Bozart and thanks for all your efforts.
