The Réseau Art Nouveau Network now Cultural Route of the Council of Europe!


The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is delighted to announce that it has been approved for certification as a Council of Europe Cultural Route by the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA), following the final defense which took place on 11 April 2014 in Luxembourg.

Through numerous activities (travelling exhibitions, colloquiums, publications, activities for children…), the Réseau Art Nouveau Network indeed created since 1999 an active cooperation and an exchange of experiences between multiple European actors concerned by the study and the conservation of the European and International Art Nouveau heritage, as well as by its promotion and diffusion towards the public while underlining the cultural values and the European dimension of this heritage.

It answers thus to the different requested criteria for the granting of this mention (representative theme of the European values common to several countries; projects of multilateral long-term cooperation of scientific research, of heritage conservation and enhancement – especially towards the young Europeans; organisation in independent and structured network…) and has been recognized by the EPA of the Council of Europe as a “a cultural, educational heritage and tourism co-operation project aiming at the development and promotion of an itinerary or a series of itineraries based on a historic route, a cultural concept, figure or phenomenon with a transnational importance and significance for the understanding and respect of common European values.” (Annexe to Resolution CM/Res(2013)66)

It joins the 26 others Cultural Routes certified yet for a three-years collaboration especially with the European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR), technical body set up in 1998 to ensure the continuity and development of the Cultural Routes programme in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention.

The Cultural Routes programme was launched by the Council of Europe in 1987. Its objective was to demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage of the different countries and cultures of Europe contributes to a shared cultural heritage. The Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.

Exhibition Flora's Feast at the Halles Saint-Géry in Brussels – from 7 February to 27 April 2015


The floral pattern in Art Nouveau

The floral pattern is used in the decorative arts or architecture since time immemorial and in almost all cultures. However, at the time of Art Nouveau, it is reinvented in our area upon contact with Japan of which borders open from 1868. Our artists discover then how their colleagues looked at nature: Japanese artists accepted the nature how she presented itself in reality, with its imperfections and its fragilities, and enhanced its particularities through their art. Flowers that can be found on Japanese fabrics, lacquered items or engravings presented a surprising aspect, sometimes tortuous, even withered, which was not habitual in our area. This new look at nature opened new ways of inspiration to our Belgian artists, withered with the academic repertoire. Our Art Nouveau overflows thus of original interpretations of the flower, under all its forms and colors. Our exhibition presents to you several examples through, among others, some posters, stained-glasses or sgraffitos from Brussels.

Curator: Guy Conde-Reis
Scientific collaboration : Françoise Aubry (Horta Museum, Saint-Gilles) et Eric Hennaut (Pechère Library).

This exhibition organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network at the initiative of the Monuments and Sites Directorate of the Brussels Regional Public Service in the framework of the "Art Nouveau & Ecology" project.

A book, in progress, will develop the subject (publishing around March).
