The Mima reopens on the 3rd of June
Installation view.

BRUSSELS.- The Mima will be reopening its doors on Wednesday, the 3rd of June!

Every effort will be made to offer visitors the best possible visit in compliance with the required safety conditions.

Visitors will be limited to 40 per hour in order to respect a ratio of 20 square metres per person. We have therefore set up an eticketing system so that visitors can reserve a time slot and buy their ticket.

A tour respecting social distancing rules will be organised, giving visitors the best possible experience of the ZOO exhibition. Hydroalcoholic gel will also be available.

By reopening its doors to the public, the Mima is eager to play its part in the urgent revival of cultural life. In doing so, Mima also stands in solidarity with other cultural actors that are still in lockdown, such as theatres, cinemas, festivals, concert halls and other venues that are not yet authorised to restart their activities.

Zoo, the current exhibition
In situ installations and paintings mark out a visit to ZOO, the current MIMA exhibition. References to pop and humour provide the backdrop. The object is clearly to listen to what the furry or feathered characters are telling us about humans. Here a ferocious smile gives a biting criticism of society, there it expresses our savagery.

The anthropomorphic works of the 11 international artists depict a humanity remote from nature, superficial and often joyful.

Anthropomorphism is inspired by the visual legacy of mass pop culture such as cartoons, comic strip and graphic design. These media, which bear the hallmarks of marketing, are cultural products exemplifying the capitalist society of the 20th century. A brief analysis of them reveals the beliefs and interests that, with time, have shaped the individual of the millennium. The adoption of these aesthetic codes and the diverting of their original meanings in the works of ZOO offer up to the visitors’ gaze the image of a wild humanity.
