2017 Art Nouveau World Day: Photo contest Movement in Art Nouveau - 10 June 2017 

On June 10th 2017, we will celebrate the Art Nouveau World Art Day and you are all warmly invited to take part to this international event, open to all!

This fifth edition will be dedicated to the theme of movement in Art Nouveau, a characteristic feature of this genre, as it was of the Fin-de-Siècle period in which it appeared. Advances in technology went hand-in-hand with the growth of transport (trains and aviation), communications (the telephone) and leisure activities (photography and cinema), all of which encouraged movement and flow. In addition to the organic curves and shapes and the more geometric lines and rhythms that we find in Art Nouveau, the use of natural light in the interiors and the representation of subjects in motion (e.g. nature, fauna and flora) make it a kinetic art form.

Make us discover what you consider as the most beautiful Art Nouveau in movement piece of work by taking part in our photo contest!

Send us your most beautiful photographs showing movement in Art Nouveau before the 6th of June 2017 at midnight, with your completed entry form enclosed (see below) at

All photographs received matching the theme will be published on June 10th on our Facebook page and submitted to the vote of the Internet community. You will also be invited to guess which Art Nouveau piece of work the photographs refer to.

Three prizes will be awarded:
- "The Internet community prize" for the photograph that will have obtained the largest number of “likes” at 6pm,
- "The Mystery prize" for the person who will guess the origin (piece of work, author) of the largest number of photographs;
- "The Jury’s Prize" awarded by a jury composed of the secretariat and members of the Network.
All the photographs will then be published on the Pinterest page of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network.

Get your cameras ready and let’s meet on our Facebook page on the 10th of June to take part to this Day and discover the great winners!

Exhibition Art Nouveau ?¿ Art Déco at the CIVA Foundation in Brussels – from 24 March to 28 May 2017

Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Both styles are often close and – though we do not admit it – we tend to confuse them. What are exactly the differences between both trends? CIVA Foundation answers this question with a surprising and interactive exhibition.

Today, numerous examples of Art Nouveau and Art Deco architecture can be discovered and admired in Brussels’ streets. The exhibition will highlight those jewels of our heritage through original photos, drawings and models. Representative furniture and decorative items will take us back in time (Art Nouveau or Art Deco?).

Both of those trends did not simply bring a wind of fresh air in interior design and plastic arts. They also strongly influenced our life, hobbies as well as women’s fashion. Their trace can be seen in several places of the city : Flagey, Bozar, the MIM, Citroën, Koekelberg’s basilica or the cafés l’Archiduc or Falstaff are outstanding examples.

Also, the front covers of Femmes d’Aujourd’hui would be absolutely different without the Art Deco influence. And what about the outstanding movie theaters like l’Eldorado or l’Aegidium?

The exhibition offers simultaneously a look back on our past and a present-day view of our heritage ! Thanks to an interactive tour, kids will also be able to step into the fantastic world of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Horta? Hankar or van de Velde? Those architects will soon have no secrets for them!
