It is not so much the content that is at the heart of our 'Dream Visit', but the experience: learning to look and using your imagination, while focussing on materials and colours. Through play, we will explore the various garments and themes from the exhibition and the pupils will be invited to reflect, draw and actively participate.

Ellen Van den broucke

Throughout history, people have viewed make-up with suspicion and compared it to wearing a mask, a mask behind which – in particular – a woman would hide. Today, make-up has become a multibillion-dollar industry that nonetheless confronts us with our physical impermanence, imagined imperfections and existential fears. But make-up is also a means of personal expression, artistic experimentation and freedom.

Masquerade, Make-up & Ensor presents work by make-up artists and visual artists who delve more deeply into such themes as the representation of women, physical and digital face filters, distorted body images and the ritual of making up.

Register for a free school performance (3+) of Sprookjes enzo on January 21 and 23!

We had a very passionate guide who was able to captivate our children from the get-go!
