The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Manneken Pis

Manneken-Pis means “peeing boy” in the language of the city of which it’s a symbol: Brussels
No more than half a meter high, this small statue that pours water from the top of a #fountain, it’s located in the historic center and it’s one of the main local tourist attractions.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The Manneken was originally in stone around 1300 but, following the theft of the first version, Jérôme #Duquesnoy the Elder made this bronze copy in the early 1600s. Various legends circulate about the choice of the subject but what has always represented is the independence and military courage of the Belgians, as well as their sense of #humor


‣ An ancient #tradition has it that “friends of Manneken” on the occasion of festivities, special occasions or moments of the year dress it to theme.
This ritual is now very felt by the citizens and the little “boy” is provided with almost 800 ceremonial costumes and #clothes mostly related to a profession
