Sublime and Subtle?

The Antwerp Cathedral, 500 Years in Search of Language

2021 is a jubilee year for the Cathedral: in the long period between 1352 and 1521, the impressive church was built. Although the current circumstances give little reason to celebrate, we do not want to let an anniversary like this pass by unnoticed. The original plan was a popular festival: the Cathedral was to turn outwards, inviting all Antwerp citizens to join in the celebrations. Now, on May 14th, we are doing the opposite and turning inwards. Together with UCSIA, the Cathedral has developed an academic program that questions the role of the Cathedral in contemporary Antwerp.
