Bibliotheca Wittockiana - Museum of Book Bindings and Book Arts
As part of Europalia Indonesia, the Wittockiana is presenting an exhibition centered on Indonesian comic strip: its history, its heroes and its contemporary creation. A way of opening yourself up to the world and becoming imbued in Indonesian culture and traditions.
Syphilis, the great pretender. A shameful, stigmatising, terror-inducing disease, the “great pox” has amassed numerous medical theories over time, not to mention occasionally some strange beliefs. The exhibition at the ULB features a collection of wax anatomical models from the Museum of Medicine, the history of cures and prevention, and the accounts of artists and writers such as Baudelaire, Nietzsche and Maupassant.
Museum of Pharmacy and Medicinal Plants (ULB Museums)
Follow the stages punctuating the odyssey of the use of natural resources as medicines, including healing plants, mythical plants and harmful plants, and head off on a discovery of essential oils through to a fun workshop/game.
