Under the spell of time

In de ban van de tijd

Time. It was not only the Jules Verne’s world traveller Phileas Fogg and Lewis Carroll’s Alice that wrestled with it, the Greeks and the medieval monks also racked their brains’ over it. The history of time follows a whimsical path. The quest to find it and how to measure it are part of one of the most exciting, paradoxical and mind-blowing subjects that exist.

Hello, Robot
Whether they are characters in a film, cuddly companions for old people or military drones, everyone has some idea of what robots are.
De Kabinetten
This exhibition offers a stage to ‘solitary creators’, in continually alternating configurations: recent acquisitions will be shown, vulnerable work will be returned to the depot and new themes will be presented.
Whale spotting
Ghent University is celebrating its 200th anniversary and displaying the Ghent University Museum’s collection at various locations around the city. Scientific objects invite dialogue with their new surroundings.
