The hightest point of Brussels – or so it seems – is the Law Court. It’s a good place to park your car. It’s free and there is a somewhat surreal elevator to the city.
In Brussels, there is a small arcade not far from the Grand Place and the Royal Galleries of Saint-Hubert, where new and second hand books are sold. You photograph L’art en Belgique depuis 1975, La Divine et l’impure, Welcome to the Desert of the Real, Amours, guerre et sexualité, Philippe Garner‘s (you presume) Decorative Arts from 1940 to the Present Day (originally London, 1980) with cult brand Fiorucci on the cover.
Entering the Royal Galleries of Saint-Hubert from The Grand Place side, you follow the arcade until after the intersection, on the corner is art book shop Librairie Saint-Hubert, where you photograph Into Me / Out of Me (Klaus Biesenbach, Georges Bataille and Susan Sontag) .
Continuing, you take some shots of the ongoing Écran Total repertory programme from Cinéma Arenberg.
By now it has started raining, this is what you see at the Regentschapsstraat, on your way back to the car, holding a piece of cardboard over your head.
