This exhibition is based on two monumental works by Mario Merz (1925-2003): Les maisons tournent autour de nous ou nous tournons autour des maisons (1979) and L’Horizon de lumière traverse notre verticale du jour (1995).
In April 2016 From the Collection: 1964-'76 - sans M.B. opened as a prelude to the Broodthaerskabinet in January 2017.
For almost a year Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawing No.36 signals the start of a presentation-in-progress in the form of smaller cabinet exhibitions and performances.
Each of the four rooms in this exhibition serves as a separate chapter discussing various functions that art can assume.
