After a major exhibition in 2019 at Mukha in Antwerp, Marcel Broodthaers has an exhibition at Wiels, focusing on his famous thermoformed plastic plates or "industrial poems”. A new way of exploring language that has become a trademark: poetic “advertising”. A big Marcel Broodthaers exhibition in Belgium is always an event. They have been held in recent years in New York, Madrid, and Brussels (a dialogue with Magritte).
