Your lifestyle has already been designed.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have.

Alice_Bxl - Gallery and Shop.

Alice, a new shop dedicated to urban art and culture, recently opened its doors in Brussels. It stocks books, magazines, toys, stickers, t-shirts and more. It also features a gallery dedicated to street art where the first exhibition will be taking place at the end of this month. It looks promising although it felt sort of empty when I visited it last week, it’s a bit early to judge though. The shop’s located at the end of the Rue Dansaert, close to the canal and Le Bonheur, a recent defector to that part of town.
