Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
Brussels is a melting pot of many cultures. In the training center where I teach languages, we have students – young and old – from all over the world. They are representatives of the multicultural life in Brussels. I know that not everybody loves this, but I find fascinating.
But no matter where they come from, they all know about our Belgian beer. There are about 1200 varieties, but the most popular one is the so-called “pintje”, usually a blond beer that is not strong. Nothing beats the feeling of sitting outside and enjoying a good beer!
The Collectif Caocao – a group of many artists of different disciplines – combine the concept of Belgian beer with the idea of Brussels as a melting pot. Look closely and in the white beer foam you can see 19 faces. Faces representing people from different backgrounds and origins, all enjoying a good beer. It almost makes you feel thirsty!
The number 19 by the way is not a coincidence, because the region of Brussels consists of 19 municipalities.
