CULTURE EXPOS 2012  

D'HUGO A COBRA, Bruxelles s'affiche rebelle....

"Bruxelles a toujours été un grand foyer contestataire et d'avant-garde"

© Jean-christophe Hubert.

 

exposition2012mmlm

A travers le parcours chornologique de l'exposition, qui commence avec les exilés célèbres du XIXe siècle et se termine à l'orée des années 1950-1960, on a souhaité mettre l'accent sur le côté rebelle, voire carrément révolutionnaire de Bruxelles culturel de ces époques. Lorsque Victor Hugo arrive dans la capitale en 1852, il y rédige Napoléon le petit, son fameux pamphlet contre le retour de Napoléon  III.

 

Un peu plus tard, et dans un tout autre contexte, le Groupe des Vingts, va lui aussi privilégier l'avant -garde, à rebours de l'académie qui règnait dans les grands salons de l'époque. On retrouve donc cette idée de contestation d'un ordre étable, qu'il soit politique ou culturel.

Un fil rouge nous conduit jusqu'au mouvement surréaliste et Cobra, présente dans l'exposition. En effet, ces mouvements eux aussi sont des insurrections contre un certain académisme. L'exposition montre que Bruxelles a toujours été un grand foyer contestataire et d'avant garde, avec cette mentalité extrêmement ouverte sur les mouvements novateurs. Cela crée par exemple un terreau propice à l'éclosion du Groupe des Vingts, emmené par Octave Maus à partir de 1883, mais aussi du surréalisme et du mouvement COBRA.
