YO. Brussels Hip-Hop Generations

28/06/2017 - 17/09/2017

BOZAR and visit.brussels are bringing you a summer full of hip-hop. Originating in the streets of New York in the 1970s, hiphop grew worldwide to become the dominant phenomenon in urban and youth culture. Successive generations of young people in Brussels have been a part of this diverse movement, enriching
it in their own way. Hip-hop has continued to evolve through its four favourite forms: dance, graffiti, Djing and rap.
As part of MIXITY.brussels 2017, a new exhibition provides an overview of 35 years of creativity in the capital. It not only highlights the major periods in the history of Brussels hip-hop but immerses the visitor in the hip-hop experience. In addition to archives and objects you will meet the people from the hip-hop world itself, through various workshops, performances, battles and meetings. An urban programme for the whole of Brussels, in association with youth and neighbourhood centres.
