The Flemish Masters in situ project is made up of 40 carefully selected oeuvres away from the well-trodden and busy tourist trails. Often to be found in smaller towns and villages across Flanders, they take visitors to a variety of places (chapels, churches, castles and town halls) where they can admire original paintings by the Flemish masters from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, in their original location.

The stories of each item will be told using words and the latest digital technology. Touchscreens with state-of-theart images will show the details of masterpieces, while audio guides will further enhance the visitor experience.

Flemish Masters in situ will open in 2018 with some ten sites in and around Antwerp, in the context of "Antwerp Baroque 2018. Rubens inspires", with other sites opening their doors in 2019. In line with this project, Bozar (in collaboration with the Royal Museums for Fine Arts of Belgium) will host from 10/10/2018 – 13/1/2019 the first monographic exhibition ever on the works of Theodoor Van Loon, one of the most innovative Flemish Masters of his generation. The exhibition complements the in situ works of Van Loon that are on display at the Basilica of Scherpenheuvel and in the Beguinage Church in Brussels.
