Denis Meyers at the old Solvay building in Brussels








photos by J Spinks
"Denis Meyers takes over the former home of the Solvay company in Brussels by transforming the abandoned complex through painted words, thoughts and memories. Remember Souvenir transcribes Meyers’ work over the years to the empty walls and windows, creating an intimate look into the life of the artist. It is a true testament to Belgium’s ever-growing presence on the street art scene."  theculturetrip.com

Hitchcock in Brussels

This site reminded me of Hitchcock's famous horror movie "Birds".
The UP-site residential tower dates from 2014 and offers stunning views of Brussels, the canal and its surroundings.

Wiels, Brussels showing City Life in Congo


"This exhibition by photographer Sammy Baloji and anthropologist Filip De Boeck offers an exploration of different urban sites in Congo, through the media of photography and video. Focusing upon the “urban now”, a moment suspended between the broken dreams of a colonial past and the promises of neoliberal futures, the exhibition offers an artistic and ethnographic investigation of what living – and living together – might mean in Congo’s urban worlds"
