Art Deco in all its forms: Architecture and the Decorative Arts around the Clockarium

The Clockarium, a surprising museum of Art Deco ceramic clocks housed in a beautiful Art Deco style building, will serve as the starting point for a two-part, interactive guided walk. The first part involves an exploration of the Boulevard Auguste Reyers/Auguste Reyerslaan and the Square Vergote/Vergoteplein, during which the guides will use the ornamental language of the clocks from the Clockarium to explain the links between their decoration and the decorative repertoire of Art Deco buildings. Next, the walk will continue inside the Clockarium itself, where, drawing on the characteristic Art Deco elements taken from international examples, the guides will invite visitors to try to find the same elements in the clocks selected from the museum’s most representative examples.

A partnership between the Brussels Art Deco Society and the Clockarium.
