Freedom is a concept to which Albert attaches great importance, not only in terms of style and subject matter, but also in his own artistic development. When the demand for Niemeyer’s works exploded in the 1980s and his creations found their way into both private and company collections, the artist remained true to himself and his ideals. His aim is to bring timeless quality. Creativity prevails. It typifies Niemeyer as an artist: self-willed, sincere, penetrating, expressive, inquisitive and always developing.
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.
