Discover the inspiring stories of various generations of artists who express themselves through textiles, in the unique architectural context of the Maurice Verbaet Center.
Many of the artists put autobiographical elements in their work, dealing with political and social issues or personal experiences.
The visit starts on the ground floor, where works by textile artists of the 1970s and 80s is presented. We then head to the 8th floor of the Maurice Verbaet Center, where you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of Antwerp.
Next, we head down the staircase and contemplate the works of artists who freely express themselves through textiles. They owe this freedom to the first generation of textile artists who changed the perception of textile art in art criticism. Artistic quality has more to do with intention than style or medium.
