    or

    you are beyond Brussels ?

    If you're a gallery, a collective or a school located outside Brussels, we offer you the unique opportunity to be exposed in the heart of the city. De Markten, a central hub for art and culture, becomes a canvas for your exposure. Use a text section to describe your values, show more info, summarize a topic, or tell a story.
