Partial curatorial text: Bruges Contemporary Art and Architecture Triennial 2015 Bruges as a megapolis 20 May – 18 October 2015 Every year, over five million people visit Bruges. What if they all decided to stay? What would it mean for a preserved, historic city like Bruges to become an overnight megapolis? This is the premise for the Bruges Contemporary Art and Architecture Triennial 2015, a major event on the arts calendar. Eighteen international artists create new works that form an art trail through the city centre. These works reflect on the future and the creative potential of the city, on urbanisation, citizenship, lifestyle, community, finance and economics. Three indoor exhibitions form the opportunity to further explore and contextualise these topics. Bruges is transformed into URB EGG: the Triennial cracks the egg of Bruges in order to reinvent the city from the inside out.
