Cultuurcentrum Brugge
The memory as a building

In the Burghers’ Lodge, Cultuurcentrum Brugge brings together six artists with Bruges roots for The memory as a building. Pierre Goetinck, Lisa Ijeoma, Joke Raes, Jasper Rigole, Ria Verhaeghe and Willy Vynck set to work in the historic rooms and present new work in which concepts such as collecting, archiving and conservation are linked to art historical themes, both personal and/or social. Together they search for ‘the memory’ of the Burghers’ Lodge, a wanderspace that has evolved from a commercial site to an Academy, and from State Archives to temporary exhibition space.

Cultuurcentrum Brugge is a Bruges cultural house that makes stimulating artistic choices with a focus on the distribution of theatre, music, contemporary dance, circus, visual arts and multidisciplinary projects. Specifically in the field of visual arts, it has been realising exciting and succesful exhibition projects in Exporuimte Poortersloge for several years.

De Republiek
We wake the city

A city can only truly come alive when not everything is fixed. With We wake the city, De Republiek and Architectuuratelier Dertien12 illustrate what opportunities lie hidden in a heritage city if you know how to look at it in a generous way. We stimulate the imagination and provide suggestions for new interpretations.

A city can only really come alive when not everything is fixed. With We wake the City, De Republiek and Architectuuratelier Dertien12 stimulate the imagination as part of Bruges Triennial with a special edition of Brieven aan de Stad and an urban expedition.

Musea Brugge
Rebel Garden

With Rebel Garden, Musea Brugge presents an exhibition around today’s most pressing topic: climate change. What is our impact on nature, and how does this affect the environment? Featuring both historic and contemporary artworks, the exhibition takes a close look at the tumultuous relationship between humans and nature and places a finger on the painful wound that is the climate crisis. On show from the permanent collection are works by Roger Raveel, Emile Claus and Otobong Nkanga, amongst others, but also expect top works by contemporary artists such as Guillaume Bijl, Christine Ödlund, Giuseppe Penone, Rose Wylie and Per Kristian Nygård.

Musea Brugge connects art, culture, heritage and people. And all at 13 unique sites within the walls of the city. Connect to contemporary and classical visual art, historic buildings, the best views and exclusive exhibitions.
