The Middelheim Museum is inviting international contemporary artists to get involved with typical Baroque elements such as the grotto, fountain and trompe-l’oeil.
The grotto, the maze, the living tableau, the folly, the fountain,the trompe-l’oeil, … these are all style elements from the Baroque which play around with the tension between nature and artifice. At the request of the Middelheim Museum international contemporary artists are experimenting with this legacy. The new works, sculptures and installations will be given a place in the museum and in public places in the city.

In the exhibition ‘Sanguine | Blood-red’ the Baroque masters enter into confrontation with leading contemporary artists.
The exhibition ‘Michaelina’ shows the exceptional talent of an artist who made a name for herself at a time when female artists were very rare.
How did book publishing evolve during the Baroque? Why did a publisher like Balthasar Moretus choose to work with prominent artists? And who are the innovators in publishing today?
