At the Grand Curtius, the 6th volume of Inner Space is a multidisciplinary event where artistic performances, video art, plastic art, concerts and encounters intersect. The forty or so artists represented there come from the Liège region, but more broadly from Belgium and Europe. They have been invited to propose an artistic intervention inspired by their encounter with the Grand Curtius collections.
A Tale of Facts' is Andy Warhol's impressive biography, spanning more than 550 pages by Dutch cartoonist Typex. The exhibition, imagined with the author, takes a personal and offbeat look at pop culture and the Warholian universe.

The Battle of Stalingrad refers to the fighting that occurred between 17 July 1942 and 2 February 1943 for control of the eponymous city, which has been our sister city since 1959. The USSR forces fought those of the Third Reich. The fighting, which lasted six months, claimed the lives of about 750,000 soldiers and 250,000 civilians, making the Battle of Stalingrad one of the deadliest in history.
It was one of the great defeats of the German army and was definitely a major strategic turning point in World War II.
Is this the longest century? The 19th century, which marked the beginnings of the modern era, began with the French Revolution of 1789, which marked both the end of the old regime and, under the banner of freedom, the advent of a new world that needed to be built.
This exhibition runs until 31 December 2018.
