Brussels-Bruxelles, An Urban Journey
The story of Brussels is told during a journey across boulevards, squares, alleys, urban space...
By making a heroine out of these streets, disco- vering those who tread upon them, work there, pass by, take a stroll there and give up their time to celebrate them or demonstrate on their behalf.
By immersing ourselves in certain districts of Brussels, in collaboration with informed speakers, reacquainting ourselves with the origin and past of these streets and examining the various changes and destruction that they have incurred and the current transformations and imagining what the future holds.
Streets are not just public roads that you drive along and use to get from A to B. They present a whole range of political, economic, urban, societal, cultural, poetic... and amusing issues.
To examine these issues is to show how much Brussels is changing and how today, citizens are managing to reclaim their urban space.
Fundamentally, when the streets are alive, the city comes alive.
