Call for Justice. Art and the Judiciary in the Burgundian Netherlands is the final element of the city festival, OP.RECHT.MECHELEN. The exhibition is built around three themes (justice, jurisdiction and injustice) and showcases prestigious masterpieces from the Netherlands and abroad, including among others, Quinten Metsys, Maarten van Heemskerck, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Maerten de Vos, Peter Paul Rubens, Antoon van Dyck and Philippe de Champaigne. Call for Justice will also announce the opening of the new Hof van Busleyden Museum. It is currently still undergoing renovation work, but from 17 June 2018, this stately 16th-century city palace will once again open its doors to the general public. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful buildings in Mechelen and perfect for soaking up the atmosphere of the Burgundian Netherlands. The former residence of Hieronymus van Busleyden, where he welcomed friends like Thomas More and Erasmus to his home, will once again assume its role in the city as a genuine humanist house. A place of meetings, inspiration, and wonder.
