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 of when taking a stroll along the canal in Molenbeek. This area is slowly being renewed, and it’s attracting more people, bars, and happenings.

The museum itself has a permanent and a temporary collection. The current temporary collection is called “Popcorn”. It features  “a group show featuring 15 artists who paint a colourful, offbeat and dreamlike picture of our society, with a dose of surrealism comparable to that of the 1930s”, as they highlight on the museum website.

I love the colours and the different style of art that is showcasted. But what’s the funniest bit? You can get a popcorn box that you are encouraged to eat while visiting the exhibition.

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

This exhibition will last till 26th of May 2024, hurry up!
