Dubbed the “paper Google” (Le Monde) and “The Web time forgot” (New York Times), the Mundaneum is the visionary brainchild of Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine who, from 1895, aimed to collect and index all knowledge! Archives centre and exhibition space designed by François Schuiten and Benoit Peeters, the Mundaneum preserves a precious documentary heritage, about basically everything.
The exhibition "Mapping Knowledge. Understanding the world through data” marks its big reopening after works. An interactive travel to the heart of the universe of information: from pioneers of data visualization to contemporary artists who take a new look at the complexity of today’s world…
