Bruegel: Subjects for speculation and Traps to see

Bruegel’s landscapes take his viewers on a visual and mental quest of the visible world which leads to the realm of the invisible.
The lecture will highlight this fundamental characteristic of Bruegel's work. The works of Bruegel, as Reindert Falkenburg (New York University Abu Dhabi) and Michel Weemans (École nationale supérieure d'art, Bourges) suggest, are to be seen as lessons in observation: providing subjects for speculation and traps to see.

Conference in English, with simultaneous translation into French.
