Brussels light festival puts spotlights on art nouveau

Bright Brussels, the light festival in Brussels from 16 to 19 February, will focus on the rich architectural heritage in the city. The festival this year is part of the broader ‘Art Nouveau Brussels 2023’.

In a couple of weeks, three routes will guide visitors along some 20 light shows. The routes are in Schaarbeek, around the royal palace and in the European quarter. Artists from Belgium and other countries will work with energy-efficient lights to appeal to different emotions.

At Place Jean Rey in the European quarter today’s Belgian society based on Google search terms will be projected. Other buildings used for the festival include the museum for instruments and the Brusilia tower in Schaarbeek. Several musea in Brussels will open their doors during the evenings of the festival.
