Divine Decadence, an exhibition in collaboration with Mechelen-based theatre group Abattoir Fermé, will be bringing to life the Decadent cult book A Rebours by Joris-Karl Huysmans in Gaasbeek Castle. It will start on 27 March.
At the end of the nineteenth century, in the age of industrialisation, the Decadents escaped what they considered banal reality through beauty and art. Today, artists still rebel against a good many social norms and taboos. Various works of art immerse you in the luxurious and sometimes dark world of decadence. With works by amongst others Berlinde De Bruyckere, Jan Fabre, Erwin Olaf, Gérard Rancinan, Félicien Rops, Kees Van Dongen en Jan Van Oost.
Tuesday – Sunday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
