In 1968, the then mayor Pierre Vandamme announces the first Triennial for Plastic Art in Belgium in the Bruges Stadshallen. There are 86 names on the poster, including Marcel Broodthaers, Jef Geys, Panamarenko and Roger Raveel. All are invited to question the role of contemporary art in Belgium. Rigorous, honest and critical are the words used in the exhibition catalogue. There are just three editions. In 1974 the third edition becomes – albeit temporarily – the last.
