At the end of the 19th century, music also played a role in the Art Nouveau movement, which was intended to be multidisciplinary. In this respect, Brussels, the second most industrialised city in the world after Manchester, was a hub for the spread of this avant-garde style. Numerous composers and musicians are members of various lodges throughout the world, such as Maurice Kufferath, director of the Théâtre de la Monnaie, who is responsible for spreading the influence of musical creation.
The series of conferences will be given in French and will take place in the Masonic temple decorated in the Art Nouveau style in rue du Persil: Victor Horta and Freemasonry (29 April), Paul Hankar and Freemasonry (24 June), Philippe Wolfers and Freemasonry (30 September) and Art Nouveau, Music and Freemasonry (25 November).
