Much more than just some mussels

Planning on visiting the Royal Palace to take a look at those Michaël Borremans paintings? Why don’t you drop by at the Royal Museums Of Fine Arts as well then, as they are just around the corner. For the very first time they have their entire Marcel Broodthaers collection on display (until September 26). OK: the room is too big and the set up of the exhibition could have been better, but nevertheless… Each time I see a bunch of works by Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976), they always get my brain working. Broodthaers, of course, is much more than those mussels he is famous for. The weirdness of his art and the questions the Belgian artist raises by it, always trigger my mind. Even though his art often seems impenetrable and insipid. His works make me want to head straight for the bookshop and buy lots of art books and study some more.  (More info: here)
