As the home of more than 180 nationalities, Belgium’s capital is famously multicultural. Brussels recently celebrated ‘the year of diversity’, with a series of important cultural events taking place across the city. One such example, Bruxelles: Terre d’Accueil? (Brussels: a Safe Haven?), was launched last October and can be seen at the Jewish Museum of Belgium until 18 March. We spoke to Chouna Lomponda, the museum’s head of communication and public relations, to find out more about this significant new exhibition which traces two centuries of immigration in the capital. Bruxelles: Terre d’Accueil? marks an exceptional, temporary reopening for the museum, after it was closed to the public following a tragic shooting in May 2014.
