In a place where you wouldn’t expect it, in the centre of the small urbanised municipality of Drogenbos, the FeliXart museum is situated in an oasis of 5 hectares of green, the domain that once belonged to Felix De Boeck (1895-1995), one of the pioneers of Belgian abstract art. The museum opened in 1996 and focuses on historical and contemporary avant-garde art. Thanks to exhibitions, projects and publications of national and international standing, the museum has in recent years occupied an important place within the expertise on avant-garde, Interbellum and abstract art. The museum works with two large panels. On the one hand there is FeliXeco, the ecological hatch, which mainly unfolds between the trees on the beautiful green domain of the museum. On the other hand there is FeliXart, the artistic part of the organisation. The ART in FeliXart stands for three platforms: Aspects, Reflections and Talents. A triptych on which the museum works to keep art alive and continue to surprise the visitor. Nevertheless, Felix’s work forms the common thread, quality and authenticity are the most important criteria. The aim is to update and contextualise the oeuvre of the painter-farmer.
