To understand Horta from the inside by going off the beaten track. This is the aim of this exhibition: to understand his expression and vocabulary without any preconceived ideas…

In 1893, Victor Horta drew up the plans for the Tassel Hotel. For art historians, this date corresponds to the birth of Art Nouveau, a style that would spread throughout the Western world until 1914. Yet behind this term lies a multitude of architects and designers with a singular, personal and sometimes antithetical expression. Behind this title, the exhibition seeks to question Victor Horta’s approach without any considerations of style or belonging to a movement.
