Denmark moves into Bibliothéque Woluwe-Saint-Pierre

In May, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark move into the public libraries of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Brussels, with Danish, Finnish, and Swedish themes, respectively, in three different libraries.

The public library Bibliothéque du Centre has dedicated the whole month to Denmark with an exhibition of Danish-Bruxellois artist, Carsten Poulsen’s paintings, film screening, food tasting, exhibitions of ‘Vikings in comics’, readings, and much more.


The opening takes place May 3rd at 18.30 and will include a welcome speech by Deputy Mayor Caroline Persoons, the vernissage of Carsten Poulsen’s exhibition Portrætter mødes / Portraits Croisés (EN: ‘Portraits meet’), screening of the Danish movie Marie Krøyer by film director Bille August, a mini flea market selling Danish books and many more Danish attributes.
