En marge de l'exposition 'Portraits d'Érasme'

Drawing competition "Erasmus and I"

A drawing competition initiated by the Erasmus House as part of its exhibition "Portraits of Erasmus. Dürer, Holbein, Metsys, Froben" will be held from 20 October 2010 until 23 January 2010.

The competition requires the children to find inspiration in the portrait of Erasmus by Quinten Metsys or the representation of the humanist in the diptych, produced by his friend Pieter Gillis, and then produce their own rendition of Erasmus, accompanied by their own self-portrait.

The drawings should be in the museum's possession by 15 December, at the latest. Prizes will be presented on 27 January 2010 at 10.00, followed by a drink.
The winning class will receive a guided tour by the curator of the Erasmus House, Alexandre Vanautgaerden and the three best entries will also receive a prize.
The best drawings will be displayed at the museum from 25 until 30 January 2010, following the exhibition "Portraits of Erasmus".
A jury of Erasmus experts, illustrators and art historians will choose the winners.

Workshop about the construction of the biographical narrative. i 2011, 7,30 pm

La vie d'Érasme est un roman, qu'il a contribué à rédiger, car il a compris très jeune qu'il devait construire, grâce aux outils de la rhétorique, un récit s'il désirait prendre sa place comme Prince des humanistes. Joseph Drese a élaboré un atelier où il nous présentera comment s'élabore la construction du récit biogaphique dans un contexte existentiel.

Literary cafe. 22 i 2011. 14H00

The Anderlecht library regularly organizes literary cafes that allow readers to discover authors and to contemplate creativity.

It seemed reasonable to take up the concept of the literary café in order to present the many theories that the curator, Alexandre Vanautgaerden, wanted to develop in the design of the exhibition, as well as in the narratives about the self-portraits of Erasmus, which will be published by Brepols for this occasion.

Alexandre Vanautgaerden has written many books and articles about Erasmus. He is particularly interested in the publication of the humanist’s correspondence and the relationships he entertained with his printers. This allowed him to show us what an important figure Erasmus really was, because of his ideas but also in the history of books. Erasmus was not someone who was content with handing over his text to the printers. He felt compelled to oversee and develop the layout himself, as this would influence the way in which his readers would interpret and understand his work.
