Pieter Bruegel is often seen as the embodiment of Flemish identity. Why has that been so since the revival of his work around 1900? How has he grown to become an icon, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a huge cliché?

Exhibition catalogue Feast of Fools - Bruegel rediscovered, presented at the Château de Gaasbeek, Belgium (7 april - 28 july 2019).
In the exhibition 'Feast of Fools. Bruegel Rediscovered' the visitor becomes acquainted with a series of key works by modern masters and new creations by contemporary artists who ‘have a thing for Bruegel’. They latch onto his themes, reinterpret them, quote him ... and thus demonstrate that his work has lost none of its relevance.
The exhibition inquires the way in which Flemish, and by extension Belgian and international artists, handled his artistic legacy in the period between and after the wars. Hence we focus on James Ensor, Valerius De Saedeleer, Jules De Bruycker, Gustave Van de Woestyne, Frits Van den Berghe, Jean Brusselmans, Constant Permeke, Anto Carte, Otto Dix, Stijn Streuvels, August Sander, Hubert Malfait and George Grosz.
At the same time, the exhibition pulls out various contemporary stops, with art, video and music. In collaboration with curators Luk Lambrecht and Lieze Eeneman, a series of artists have been invited to delve into the themes from Bruegel’s work or into the interpretation of them by the generation of rediscoverers.
