The Regional School of Public Administration is a key partner of local authorities in Brussels. It supports them in their desire for excellence in public management.

« When the walls speak »

Born in Europe at the end of the 19th century, the illustrated poster reflects an increasingly commercial world, then a world in which political ideologies are opposed. By their size and their imposing presence, the posters conquered the public space and participated in shaping the urban landscape. The posters are ephemeral and designed for a specific moment, but many elements are recycled and have become part of the cultural memory, so that they still resonate today. From the propaganda of the two World Wars and the Cold War to the explosion of cultural exchanges, the rise of tourism and the emergence of heterogeneous social movements after the Second World War, the selection of posters from the collection of the House of European History bears witness to a complex intertwining of European division and unity. These posters bear witness to the development and transformation of the public sphere in European cities. They show the major evolutions in the aesthetics of European posters over time, as well as the parallels, correlations and interrelationships between posters from different countries.

4 PM : Free time and end of the Study Lab
