Exhibition 'The Beauty of War. Waterloo 1815-2015' opens in Brussels on 17 June
Can war be beautiful?
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. In view of this event, historian and artist, Koen Broucke bases an exhibition on this paradoxical assumption: in its representation, the horror of war is given an aesthetic character and even leads to sublime beauty.
