School Visit Without a Guide
Visit MoMu with your class without a MoMu guide.
Visit the museum with your group and discover MoMu's exhibitions ECHO. Wrapped in Memory, Baloji Augurism. and the permanent Collection presentation.
The exhibition 'ECHO. Wrapped in memory' is about the intimate connection between clothing and memory through the lens of three artists: fashion designer Simone Rocha, artist Louise Bourgeois, and choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. They each use clothing, textiles and personal memories to shape their creations and tell stories.
The exhibition highlights several themes, including motherhood, childhood and nostalgia, crafts and repair, clothing memories and the passage of time. n addition, the exhibition displays 'imperfect' garments from the MoMu collection, which reveal the presence of their previous wearers and tell stories of a life, of scars, sweat, tears and joy.
MoMu’s ‘Collection presentation’ looks back at four decades of Belgian fashion, complemented by a selection from the museum’s historical collection. The exhibition gives an overview of the most important protagonists of Belgian fashion, based on the themes that characterise the distinctive nature of the MoMu Collection.
With 'Baloji Augurism.', the MoMu gallery will be transformed into a place of magical realism: the intriguing world of Baloji. The exhibition is inspired by his latest feature film 'Augure' and the related albums, and gives us a new perspective on his artistic practice.
Videos, masks, garments, and installations look into the culture, philosophy, and ritual of both individual and collective contemporary Belgian and Congolese identity.
