Charette determines masterpieces.

From 19 to 21 September 2022, five international experts spoke with political leaders and employees of the municipality in a so-called ‘charette’, a method that is often used to think about urban renewal projects. The central question was how art in the public space of Knokke-Heist can be further developed in the long term. Of our monumental works of art, the experts qualified two as world-class works: 'The Enchanted Empire' by René Magritte in the Casino and 'Le Dragon' by Niki de Saint Phalle in the Avenue des Salines. They also designated 15 works with the label 'top quality'. Read more about the charette at the following link.
