Flemish Parliament Unlocked

The Academy of Anderlecht (Brussels) concludes its celebration of 40 years of artistic activity with the exhibition "Unlocked"  in the buildings of the Flemish Parliament in Brussels. Unlocked is an appropriate name since the building was formerly the Postal Cheque office with the protected counter room "the Loketten".
As provincial and municipal elections take place this October, it seems to me that politicians of all different stripes are more present in the street scene. In the second picture is shown Pascal Smet (SPA,  socialist party) (at the left smiling) Flemish Minister of Education and Carla Dejonghe (VLD,  liberal party) member of the Brussels Parliament.


  1. great pictures, I will have to visit the exhibition

  2. What a lovely smile he has too! I often think that leaders somehow look like leaders and I can imagine that he draws people in no matter what his views.

    I like the idea of this exhibition. Celebrating artistic activity. And "Unlocked" is a great name. It gives the idea that the state secrets of the past are out in the open now.

    1. Thanks, Emm for your comment.
      I also like the idea of unlocked in what used to be Locked windows and counters of a State bank.
      Fun to see 40 years of artistic activity celebrated indeed..
      As to politics, it is a subject I avoid blogging about ... nevertheless it becomes impossible to ignore the preparatory electoral activity and I will show more of that tomorrow or so...

  3. By the way, I adore your last photo!

  4. Hallo Anni,
    Je bent een onuitputtelijke bron van informatie wat cultuurevenmenten betreft!
    Ah ja hé: als de verkiezingen naderen is de politieker niet ver weg...

  5. tu crois qu'ils sont arrivés en vélos!!!!lol

  6. It has been a very long time since I set foot in that building.

  7. Leuke tentoonstelling op een prachtige locatie.
    Ik heb genoten van het werk van Alexandra Cool en Annelies Lievrouw.
    Jij hebt het weer mooi in beeld gebracht!

    1. Blij dat je met die twee bijzondere dames hebt kunnen kennismaken, Jeroen

  8. Ciao Anni foto molto belle...e forse un po' troppo ampio il sorriso del ministro...!
    A presto, buona giornata.

  9. Jij vertoeft dikwijls op tentoonstellingen en in leuke locaties! Heel leuk.

  10. We zien wel meer 'unlocked' in jouw logjes, Anni !

  11. Such a great exhibition!! Wish there were more of them! Thanks for sharing this with us!! Hope your week is going well, Anni!

  12. heel wat politici in het straatbeeld dezer dagen..

    knappe info


  13. Feeling gloomily that anyone who wants to be a politician should be put in the Loketten, I loved the colour and tone in your photographs.

  14. Your photography is like a history lesson - - I love it!!!

  15. You seem to have very accessible politicians.

  16. Pascal Smet, le fils caché de Johnny ?

  17. Jij vertelt veel over ons Belgisch vader/moederland.

  18. Grappig dat het postkantoor nu een parlementsgebouw is. Een betere bestemming dan een winkelcentrum zoals bij ons.

  19. I for one am so ready for our election to be over. Nice photos..

  20. You once visited my blog and mentioned about a friend of yours wanting to come to Italy and that you would pass the info mentioned in my post to her. I don't know what happened but she can contact me if she likes! It will be my pleasure to help.

  21. A postal cheque office ! Intersting conversion !
