The exhibition inquires the way in which modern artists handled Bruegel artistic legacy in the period between and after the wars. Hence we focus on the following artists: James Ensor, Valerius De Saedeleer, Jules De Bruycker, Gustave Van de Woestyne, Jean Brusselmans, Constant Permeke, Anto Carte, Otto Dix and George Grosz. At the same time, the exhibition pulls out various contemporary stops, with art, performance and music. Ten contemporary artists have been invited to delve into the themes from Bruegel’s work. Included artists are Pascale Marthine Tayou, Honoré d’O, Emanuelle Quertain , Gilberto Zorio, Grazia Todori, Anetta Mona, Chisa & Lucia Tkácová, Christoph Fink, Daniel Buren, Jimmie Durham, to name a few. Feast of Fools. Bruegel Rediscovered offers the visitor a total experience with various, mutually reinforcing aspects. The exhibition is being mounted in an ancient castle whose view over the landscape was shaped in the wake of the romantic period and whose collection contains many objects from Bruegel's time, located in a park of c. 50 hectares, with a museum garden which provides an overview of forgotten vegetables, fruit and pruning techniques. Gaasbeek castle is only a short distance away from the art walk, starting in St. Anna Pede
