Museum Night Fever at the House of European History!
For this year's edition of Museum Night Fever, the House of European History invites you to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of posters in our temporary exhibition "When Walls Talk!". The event is free of charge.
You can participate in a guided tour, join a lively screen-printing workshop, also known as ‘serigraphy’, and print some of the exhibition's iconic visuals, or take part in a conversation on cultural identity.
For this evening, the museum also teamed up with local Brussels artists, who will take you through a journey of sounds, vibrations and movement for a unique and dynamic show.
Guided tours in the temporary exhibition "When Walls Talk!"
The exhibition aims to reflect European history through posters from the last 100 years, in a way that raises awareness about the multiplicity of perspectives and interpretations. From the propaganda of the World Wars and the Cold War to the explosion of cultural exchange, tourism and the emergence of multi-voiced social movements after the Second World War, complex layers of European division and unity are revealed through a selection of posters from the collection of the House of European History.
Duration: 45 minutes.
