From March, the museum will dedicate one of its themed dioramas to music and instruments that came to Brussels with migrants and helped colour the multifaceted culture of Brussels. The Iraqi oud player Hussein Rassim and the French cellist Juliette Lacroix present the MigratieMuseumMigration in a beautiful mix of both their musical backgrounds.
“A good neighbour is better than a distant friend.” With this in mind, Klarafestival and BOZAR aim to reconnect with the people of Brussels and their habitat. One step in that direction is MUSIKAA: a collaboration with the Municipality of Molenbeek and some of the many cultural partners in the area.
This year, five organisations in Molenbeek invited local talent to take part in five artistic projects. We present these projects in five video portraits and five portrait photos, which will be used to brighten the streets of Molenbeek from March 21. Visitors can plan their own routes using these photos as a guide. Moreover, if they scan the QR codes they can instantly discover the video portraits.
