Book Launch : "Brussels, City of Art and History" no. 63 – The Centre for Fine Arts.

The Brussels Secretary of State for Town Planning and Heritage,
Bety Waknine, CEO of Urban and
Christophe Slagmuylder, CEO & Artistic Director Bozar,

invite you to the launch event for the new issue of the "Brussels, City of Art and History" series, about the Centre for Fine Arts.

This 63rd issue of the series, published by Urban, pays tribute to a building that is almost a hundred years old. The Centre for Fine Arts, which has been painstakingly restored and modernised to meet today’s challenges, has been listed as a monument since 1977, and harmoniously blends architecture, technical infrastructure as well as cultural programming.
