BRUSSELS (Brussels Morning) – Winter or summer time, Brussels is always swinging. Take a look at the weekend tips, this time with a festival about contemporary dance and an exhibition about photos during the lockdown. But, the sight of jazz and African music hasn’t been lost and here are the recommendations for a special children’s activity to start your weekend in the best possible way.
‘View from my window’ is the name of a temporary exhibition in the Atomium. This exhibition consists of a selection of approximately 400 photos from hundreds of thousands of images. It is an initiative of the Belgian graphic designer Barbara Duriau. On March 23, 2020 she was in Amsterdam. She wanted to have a good time during the lockdown. So she started a Facebook group where each member could submit a photo of the exterior view of their home. Interested in the rest of the exciting story? Then the exhibition is definitely for you.
