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.

Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
