Art in the metro

Art in the metro

This tour gives you an introduction to modern art: from abstract art to pop art and conceptual art. Using public transport, we plan to visit the stations that make up the biggest open-air exhibition venue in Belgium. Over 60 works of art are on show on the different floors or levels of 40 buildings. Planned for 1900, it was some time before the metro was actually built, as it was finally completed in 1965. Thanks to the brilliant idea of one of our ministers, the works of art are on show firstly for their recognition and also as aesthetic and recreational creations. You will come face to face with the works of famous artists including Roger Raveel (Merode), Edmond Dubrunfaut (Louise), Hergé (Tintin at Stockel), Jan Burssens (Etangs Noirs), Paul Delvaux (la Bourse), Paul Van Hoeydonck (Comte de Flandres), Pol Bury (la Bourse), Folon or Pol Mara (Montgoméry) and François Schuiten (Porte de Hal).
