Spotted in Brussels: quotes

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

In the past few months, I took a picture every time I saw a quote in the city. By now I have a big collection that I want to share with you from time to time. This first quote was found close to Recyclart and it’s my favorite one. “Si tu me dis encore une fois que je suis charmante, JE T’ARRACHE LES COUILLES” 🙂 . Meaning: If I hear you say one more time that I’m charming, I will cut your balls off.

This one is from the artist Mekhitar Garabedian who has an exhibition @ Bozar at the moment. All his artwork is about his family and their migration background. I was kind of moved by this phrase.

“I believe there is an absolute truth”. I found these tiles at the viewpoint @ place Poelaert.

And on the other side: “Truth is relative.”

I’m not sure what this means, but it seems like a wordplay. Bal en soir = balençoire/swing? If you figured it out, please let me know.

As much as I like Brussels, in some areas the smell of pee is very present 🙂 .

“This is not a viewpoint”, found @ Place Poelaert.

I will keep taking pictures every time I see a quote. See you next time!

  1. I just heard from someone that the quote that says ‘bal en soir avec ta bourrée’ is a racist comment about North African people. If that’s so, I apologize! I’m not going to delete it because it’s still a quote spotted in the city, but to be clear: I do not agree with what it says.
