Brussels Biennial is starting and this is the Extra City part

19 October 2008 – 4 January 2009

The first Brussels Biennial opens on 19 October and shows on various locations in Brussels seventy artists in seven exhibitions. Extra City contributes with the project Letter to Leopold, curated by its artistic director Anselm Franke. He brings together artists, writers and architects in a reflection on Belgium's colonial history in a global context, its present day legacy and implications for Europe and the European policies. Letter to Leopold is an exploration of art's possibilities to 'speak to the past'.
