In the Little Museum, children and adults can discover a small part of the collection of the Province of Hainaut. This space in the midst of the BPS22 presents the works of art at eye level for the young visitor and encourages a dialogue between the generations who are visiting the exhibition together.

For this third exhibition in the Little Museum, let's explore artistic approaches dealing with three blocks of eight hours each. How do we see article 24 of the Declaration of Human Rights today? "Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay."

With what are these three eight-hour blocks filled? What differences do we see between work and employment, between leisure and entertainment, between rest and sleep? Is inactivity a source of boredom? What happens when we sleep? These questions and many more are tackled through the exhibition Work, leisure, rest: a right...?!

ARTISTS : Valerio Adami, Bernard Beghin, Marcel Broodthaers, Pol Bury, Jérôme Considérant, Marcel Demoulin, Léon Devos, Daniel Fauville, Thierry Lenoir, Pierre Paulus...
