MIMA – An iconoclastic museum in town

Back in 2016 a new museum appeared in the Brussels scene, the Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art. This is quite a difficult name so let’s stick with MIMA, which is funny enough.

Its location is in one of the communes of Brussels which unfortunately became famous after the last terrible events in Europe. But don’t be put off by this, there’s nothing to be afraid when taking a stroll along the canal in Molenbeek. This area is slowly beeing renewed and it’s attracting more and more people, bars and happenings.

The museum itself has a permanent and a temporary collection. The current temporary collection is called “Invader Rubikcubist”. It features  “the solo exhibition by Invader entirely devoted to Rubikcubism. The term, invented in 2005, refers to his studio work around the Rubik’s cube, the famous coloured puzzle with which he creates paintings and sculptures” as they highlight on the museum website.

What is interesting is that you need to look at the “paintings” through the camera of your phone: only that way you clearly see the figures! Random coloured dots suddendly become a very well known portrait or LP cover!

There’s also a video showing the artist making his art: not an easy job I would say!

And don’t forget to go all the way to the roof for another interesting view of the city!

This exhibition will last till 8th january 2023, don’t miss it!
