Ganymed Goes Brussels
The arts have arrived in the 21st century, and it has never been easier for the boundaries between the various art disciplines to be blurred and overstepped. And that is precisely the focus of this project, namely, to explore how art oversteps boundaries.
Never before have painting, music, and literature, dance and performance been so intermeshed, with one art form serving as an inspiration for another. They draw spectators into a new experience, a new life.
The venue – a museum – becomes the scene and connecting point of this project. As places of historical conscience, museums house spectacles that seek to incorporate artists from all artistic fields and to attract spectators of all generations and nationalities.
The paintings of the Old Masters serve as the point of departure. They embody a vast heritage of imagery, an invaluable treasure-trove of inspiration and interpretation.
