During TEFAF: additional program of films, lectures, workshops and 60-minute dinners. 
Extended opening hours: Monday–Sunday noon–7pm

Works by contemporary artists enter into a dialogue with two beautifully adorned Books of Hours. Medieval aureoles echo in the performance of William Hunt. Droplets of sweat slowly falling to the floor in Oscar Santillan’s A Hymn recall Mary’s suffering. Artists search for a forgotten soul, a safe refuge, a new relation to the body and the senses. And thus they prove the surprising spiritual correspondences between early modern art and the art of today.

Boutros, stanley brouwn, David Claerbout, István Csákány, Dario D’Aronco, Thomas Grünfeld, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, Rodrigo Hernández, Sofia Hultén, William Hunt, Alicja Kwade, Wolfgang Laib, Astrid Mingels, Carlo Mollino, Christopher Orr, Thomas Ruff, Stéphanie Saadé, Anri Sala, Oscar Santillan, Gregor Schneider
