Brâncuși Week & The Endless Column

Art inspired from Romanian mythology and traditions and carved in wood, stone and later bronze. From Târgu-Jiu and Bucharest to Paris, via Munich until New York. Every year, on the 19th of February, a tribute is paid to honor the memory of genius artist Constantin Brâncuși, pioneer of modern sculpture. But the Brâncuși Week starts today.

Unter den Linden ~ From Berlin with love

Berlin has “Unter den Linden” and the central historical boulevard feels as an old postcard. The name comes from the linden trees that lined the boulevard. It starts at the Brandenburg Gate and ends at Berliner Dom, passing by the Komische Oper, Zeughaus, Bebelplatz, Staatsoper, and very soon, the Humboldt Forum (reconstructed Berlin Palace).

Art Walk Berlin

One thing I do really well is exaggerate. The previous weekend diary included many galleries, museums, a lot of coffee stops and masks thanks to a duo: 9th edition of Berlin Art Week and Galleries Weekend. This if we don’t count also the 11th Berlin Biennale for contemporary art, and all lighted up together by the Festival of Lights. I like Septembers.

What an extraordinary feeling to be in that UNESCO heritage site – a beautiful square filled with flowers, and to notice a smell of begonias mixed with waffles and chocolate. The scent I associate with Brussels ever since.

Brussels Fever

Besides to much information about chocolate, living in Brussels got to know the city very well while attending events, working, learned French and discover more places. I was what people call a “social butterfly”.

So when you have a limited amount of time in the city of Brussels, let’s say just a weekend, you should put on your list the following 7 locations and events.

International Museums Day

An event that started in Paris is now almost everywhere in the world. Every year, around the 18th of May is celebrated the International Museums day. Galleries and more other cultural places join every year the “Museum night”. The way we perceive the art perhaps is the way we perceive life. Our opinion about the same gallery exhibition can be similar or extremely different, even by us in different periods of our life.
