Baudelaire >< Brussels
Towards the end of his life, Charles Baudelaire spent two years in Brussels, from 1864 to 1866. A period of resentment, illness and misery led audelaire, author of Les Fleurs du Mal, to write an offensive pamphlet – unpublished in his lifetime, Pauvre Belgique! This pamphlet contains all the poet's grievances against Belgium and is the underlying theme of this exhibition.
This pamphlet contains all the poet's grievances against Belgium and is the underlying theme of this exhibition. In addition to the poet's defamatory comments, we invite you on a unique, irreverent visit to the Belgian capital in the 1860s, with Baudelaire as your guide. This is Brussels towards the end of King Leopold I's reign, with the Senne, black soap, dogcarts and the first photographs.
