Neon Lights

Recyclart, Brussels


Recyclart is a not-for-profit organization. It manages a multi-disciplinary arts centre as well as projects within the social economy represented by a bar/restaurant and a wood/metal working space. The old building that hosts the venue embodies the idea behind the project – alternative, slightly rough and grungy, a bit out of the way, but with a vision of connecting people and ideas, the revival of the local community. Parties, concerts, exhibitions, community-based initiatives and lectures on architecture, public space and design are on the Programm.


Recyclart moved to an old factory in Molenbeek in 2018, formerly used by an offset printer. The neon signs were replaced with details of revolutionary images. These images brighten the nights of their dances of resistance.
