Science & Culture at the Royal Palace

From 22 July to 2 September, the Royal Palace of Brussels will organise the thirteenth Science & Culture at the Palace event. In this context, the FPS Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the FPS Science Policy Office (BELSPO) and the Federal Scientific Institutes (FSI) are presenting to the public "Wonder", an exhibition that promotes Belgian cultural and scientific heritage through a magnificent selection of objects and works of art that combine what are sometimes very different disciplines.

Organised by the Federal Science Policy Office, “ Wonder ˮ is a tangible expression of one of BELSPO's key missions, namely making the Belgian and international public aware of the research activities carried out, whilst also revealing the superb federal heritage kept in its scientific establishments. Science and culture come together around the theme of wonder, with an original selection of works of art, scientific instruments and astonishing natural phenomena, whose study or creation stems from the wonder of artists or scientists expressing their vision of the world and their desire for greater understanding.


Two works from the RMFAB collections are on display in the exhibition: the painting Reflections by Baron Eugène Laermans and the sculpture Lux 11 by Nicolas Schöffer.
