The exhibition “Feast of Fools” celebrates a large number of 20th-century artists who rediscovered Bruegel and addresses the question why he became one of Flanders’ leading cultural icons. Internationally renowned artists will also be interpreting his artistic legacy with both existing and new works. Visitors will be immersed in a game of changing moods, not only with paintings but also music, literature and film. It’s a unique way of discovering Bruegel’s cynical humour, his caricatures and hidden messages, and the way he glorified landscapes and the rural life. Visitors can expect a fascinating journey through the castle’s labyrinth interiors, cleverly enhanced by one of Berlin’s most creative theatre companies, Rimini Protokoll. An added attraction is a visit to the castle’s brasserie for a glass of authentic artisan geuze, brewed just like it was in Bruegel’s time.
