The Centre for Fine Arts (BOZAR) in Brussels will use Germany's Presidency of the Council of the EU and the Beethoven Year 2020/2021 as an occasion to present a new major exhibition: HOTEL BEETHOVEN.

250 years after his birth, Ludwig van Beethoven is more than ever an icon. HOTEL BEETHOVEN, an exhibition about the composer, his music and his ideas, will look at how Beethoven remains relevant to us today. As an exceptional musical innovator, he also serves as a starting point for questions about the democratic power of sound.

From popular culture to conceptual art, spanning a timeframe from 1770 to 2020, HOTEL BEETHOVEN is a time-travelling musical mix of different eras and points of view that features manuscripts and instruments alongside works from such artists as Antoine Bourdelle, Raoul Hausmann, Andy Warhol, Katie Paterson, Christan Marclay, Christine Sun Kim and John Baldessari. The exhibition can be visited until 17 January 2021.
