After over five centuries, the Flemish Master Dieric Bouts is back in Leuven for the ‘New Horizons’-themed city festival. Bouts takes centre stage because we’re still eager to explore new horizons today, just like he did in the 15th century. He’s got the city festival’s producers fired up today, and he’s sure to inspire you. Expand your horizons in Leuven four months long.

Grand Finale ‘Le Grand Rendez-Vous'
Belgian premiere

We’ve invited international circus company Cie XY to perform Les Voyages. Their acrobatic feats tilt you – literally and figuratively – to the next level. The spectacular grand finale, ‘Le Grand Rendez-Vous’, will be performed on Wednesday, 27 September at 7 pm in Sint-Donatuspark (the city park).

This event is part of START!, the New Horizons | Dieric Bouts Festival opening week.

In the fall of 2023, M will present an extensive retrospective exhibition on Dieric Bouts. Never before have so many works by the Flemish Master been brought together in his hometown. Moreover, you get a totally new perspective on work that was made more than five centuries ago — through a radical confrontation with today's visual culture.
