MUR XL — IXELLES (ESTAMPAS) + JUEGO DE PISTAS
An enamel frieze wraps its words around Ixelles cemetery, built on its dead.
Brussels' ‘Quartier Latin' centres on Klein Zwitserlandplein, between Generaal Jacqueslaan and Elsene cemetery. It is a strategic location between the VUB and ULB universities. Students live in bedsits there and often stay on for a few years too. This young population makes it a lively neighbourhood with lots of cafés and bistros. A large community of Vietnamese refugees has also settled here over the years.
MUR XL has been on display on Elsene cemetery wall in Kroonlaan and A. Fraiteurlaan since October 2009.
In this district, Passa Porta cooperated with the Kabinet van Schepen Pascal Dufour, Babbelut, Théâtre de la Flute Enchantée, Nederlandstalige bibliotheek, Charles De Costerkring, Davidsfonds, La Forestière, VUB, Institut René Cartigny and ERG.
