Flat-Cum-Studio of Jozef Peeters

Jozef Peeters (1895-1960) was a pioneer of Belgian abstract art. He and his wife and their two children lived in a four-room corner flat on De Gerlachekaai in Antwerp. Although the façade of the building was given a contemporary revamp in the 1990s, in Peeters' studio flat it is as if time has stood still. Which is fortunate, because in the 1920 he turned it into an impressive three-dimensional painting. The House of Literature Antwerp and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp are opening Jozef Peeters' flat-cum-studio to the public. This enables people to gain a unique insight into the artist's world.

Red Star Line Museum

Red Star Line Museum

Between 1873 and 1935, the ships of the Red Star Line carried two million adventurers and fortune-seekers from Antwerp to New York. For many, the crossing began in the buildings of the Red Star Line in Antwerp. The museum tells the story of these passengers. The old buildings make their stories and emotions palpable, tangible and visible. This new museum in Antwerp also devotes attention to contemporary migration.
