The ethnographic literature of the 20th century focused mainly on the sculptural traditions of the numerous ethnic groups that populated Southern Nigeria while the more northern areas remained largely terra incognita. In 2013 Jan Strybol published a study on the sculpture of Northern Nigeria. He pointed out that in many parts of this region there are peoples who still had, at least until recently, their own sculptural tradition.
In Bruegel Revisited, renowned Flemish artists use photography, graphics, installations, video and film to find an answer to the question of what Breugel can mean for the 21st century. The location for this exhibition is the Castle of Bouchout, situated in the National Botanic Garden in Meise.
