On 22 April 2023 we will celebrate the launch of the central exhibition Baroque Influencers: The Jesuits, Rubens and the art of persuasion in the seventeenth century with a festive day in and around Hendrik Conscienceplein.
11:00 | Reading Room Heritage Library Hendrik Conscience
How would the influencers of the 17th century look at the present? And how do influencers today view that particular century and the artistic legacy that is the subject of the festival?
Podcast maker Anke Verschueren joins prominent guests in search of answers. On the guest list: Johan Verberckmoes, Sergio Servellón, Adriaan Raemdonck and others.
The talks are free to attend, but it is best to reserve a spot in advance via this link.

In honour of the opening weekend of Baroque Influencers, Tutti Fratelli makes the St Charles Borromeo Church and the Conscienceplein roar and sizzle with contentment. Loud, straightforward, and straight from the heart, they sing of the Baroque, the people and the city.
Of course, the central expo Baroque Influencers. Jesuits, Rubens and the Art of Persuasion will also be open that day. You can book your tickets in advance on our website or purchase them at the entrance of Heritage Library Hendrik Conscience or Museum Snijders&Rockoxhouse.
