The last weekend of the Art Nouveau/Art Deco Biennale on 26/27 October 2013 held a special treat for the visitors of the Hotel de Brouckère: The exhibition of Art Nouveau and Art Deco fans of the collection of Margaretha Mazura. During the 2 days, more than 400 visitors enjoyed the for many unknown beauty of fans. "People were surprised to see fans, they did not associate them with Art Nouveau or architecture. In making links to other arts - the photo of the Henry Van de Velde fan, from the Karlsruhe Museum for example- people got an idea that a fan is more than a simple fashion accessory" says M. Mazura. Clear favourites: the colourful Art Deco fans by artists such as Paul Iribe.
