In recent centuries, Brussels has experienced many upheavals that have resulted in the disappearance of the last vestiges of the old city. Following the exhibition devoted to Brussels in the 16th and 17th centuries, held in the autumn of 2017, a new exhibition is to be hosted by the Association du Patrimoine Artistique, in partnership with the Centre d’Information, de Documentation et d’Étude du Patrimoine(CIDEP) and the Museum of Medicine. The focus is once again on Brussels, but this time in the 18th century. It will use old large-scale maps of the capital, so that specific streets, lanes and back alleys, markets and fountains can be pinpointed, as well as the city’s civil and religious buildings. Engravings, drawings and photographs will accompany this exploration of the old city.
