Blog reboot – Antwerp and beyond.

Rebooting this blog on a trip to Europe after doing an art blog for the past year.

Antwerp is home to the Antwerp Six, Belgium’s most influential avant grade fashion designers. It’s also a city that has everything that a larger city has but without the hassle, with  a population of around half a million inhabitants. It has street cars and is flat and is easy to walk around. When walking around at night you can come across these random video projections about refugees!

 

The river is a surprise in a raw, industrial way. The food is great – quite French but also mid-European. The Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen is a dramatic, looking affair designed by Studio Associato Secchi-Vigano (Milan, Italy). They also have a Zaha Hadid designed Port Authority building overhanging the river which isn’t covered here. The Photo Museum has some great exhibits.
