Het Brusselse museum van de Fotografie is een nieuw project van Recyclart. De tweede tentoonstelling van dit extra muros museum vindt plaats in het station Brussel-Kapellekerk met een installatie van beelden van een 100 tal Belgische fotografen. Een groots evenement voor de Belgische fotografiewereld en in het bijzonder voor Brussel, de hoofdstad waar dergelijk museum ontbreekt.
