Although the current restrictions in Belgium, which came into force on 2 November and will remain in force until 13 December, do not allow for the opening of the exhibition in a physical sense, the institute, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by the virtual space is preparing with a series of exciting programs.

This will be the first joint collaboration in the life of the two institutions, the first time that a relatively recent exhibition, presented in LUMU at the end of 2019, ensurng the approach of the Brussels Institute, will be exhibited in Brussels.
After the discourses, Bálint Szombathy, one of the still-active members of the group, will carry out his performance. The virtually guided exhibition and the tour will also take place with the participation of Bálint Szombathy.
