Malta Land of Sea

At present the exhibition Malta Land of Sea is taking place at BOZAR in Brussel. This event is part of the Cultural calendar of Malta’s Presidency to the EU. Malta Land of Sea showcases the rich cultural diversity and cultural heritage of the Islands in the middle of the Mediterranean, and illustrates the complex dialogue between land and sea. If you are in Brussels go and see it. The visit might possibly trigger you to visit Malta because of its rich culture and its specific place in the Mediterranean sea.

I was honoured to write with Paul Dujardin a more cultural policy orientated article about Malta for the catalogue. We moved to Malta about 17 months ago and realised that a lot was going on here.  In ‘A Fresh Maltese Breeze‘ I tried to pin down the current cultural dynamics one recognises when visiting the the Maltese Islands today.
