Backstage: SELECTION I
21 September 2002 – 4 April 2003
As indicated by the title, the MoMu's opening exhibition focused on a first selection of the MoMu collection, with the intention of presenting further selections, either or not linked to a specific theme, in the future. The basis was the given of 'depot', the treasury of every museum. Therefore, the audience could expect a look behind the scenes of the museum, the collection and the future exhibition policy.
