In 2019, it will be 450 years since the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. To mark this anniversary, THE WORLD OF BRUEGEL will be shown in the Bokrijk Open-Air Museum. The Bruegelgame is part of this interactive exhibition that exposes the link between the renowned Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder and Bokrijk. The inspiring Bruegel Trail allowes the visitor to immerse himself in one of his paintings and discover, in a pleasantly surprising way, how relevant his work remains today.


The jester from the painting ‘The Fight between Carnival and Lent’ leads you on a digital tow rope. Bruegel meets Pokémon Go and Snapchat in Bokrijk! An “augmented reality” hat takes the visitor into a realistic model depicting a true example of the 16th century. An exciting search starts for missing objects from the painting.


Pieter Bruegel the Elder designed his paintings as visual puzzles for people to look at together. Viewers can discover all kinds of stories and meanings in them. As conversation pieces, they also lead to discussions. And through his compositions, Bruegel comments on current events, as well as holds up a mirror to his viewers. The visitors are invited to play the game using one of his paintings, The Battle between Carnival and Lent.


Opening 6 April 2019 until 20 October 2019 at Het Domein Bokrijk (Bokrijk/Belgium)

Extended from 4 April 2020 to 2 November 2020
