In the Eye of the Storm
Modernism in Ukraine, 1910-1930

Discover the modernist art in Ukraine between 1910 and 1930.
The Modernist movement in Ukraine developed against a backdrop of collapsing empires, the First World War, the struggle for independence and the creation of Soviet Ukraine. Despite these profound upheavals, the first decades of the twentieth century saw bold artistic experimentations and a real flowering of art, literature and theatre in Ukraine.

Josef Hoffmann
Falling for Beauty

This retrospective aims to provide a deeper insight in Hoffmann’s ideals and their evolution.
In October 1955, Viennese architect and designer Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) travelled to Brussels on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Stoclet House, the project that came to be known as a “palace” and shaped his life and career. The enduring myth surrounding this building as well as the particular product culture that emerged from the craftsmanship of the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese workshops), has dominated the approaches to his practice to this day. The exhibition wishes to offer a broader perspective by presenting Hoffmann’s artistry, for the first time in Belgium, as it develops through six decades of production.

GIANTS: a BIG opportunity to feel small

Smilodon, Paraceratherium, Megatherium… They all roamed the earth after the dinosaurs. Do you know about them?
66 million years ago, an asteroid impact caused the extinction of a vast number of animal species like dinosaurs, plesiosaurs and mosasaurs. Providing an opportunity for a few small animals that had until then lived in the shadow of the giants! They diversified, and some grew in size, sometimes even to gigantic proportions.
GIANTS will take you on a journey back in time, from the Paleogene to the Quaternary. Meet eleven animals of spectacular proportions such as Otodus megalodon, the most powerful shark to ever have lived, and Gigantopithecus blacki, the Asian monkey as big as three orang-utans.

ReThinking Collections

How do we trace the origins of collections? How do we view such origins today? And what should become of these collections, within and beyond the museum’s walls?
ReThinking Collections is a new temporary exhibition on provenance research. Most of the collections in the AfricaMuseum were acquired during the colonial era, in what is now the DR Congo. Provenance research and the related matter of restitution are attracting more attention in current social and political debate.
The exhibition shows the sometimes complex realities of provenance research. It presents varied and occasionally surprising collections, without sidestepping questions related to this contested heritage. The museum also explores new perspectives and future approaches to colonial collections.
