HeadquARTers, the headquarters of Katoen Natie, is home to an exceptional private collection. In the special private museum you can visit an exhibition about ‘3,500 years of textile art’.
Art used to be part of daily life. It featured in churches and castles, people's homes and palaces, court buildings and city halls. HeadquARTers is echoing this ancient tradition, harmoniously blending entrepreneurship, architecture, art and history.
The roots of Katoen Natie lie in the trading of cotton, wool and hides. It has therefore gathered an amazing collection of antique textile art from Egypt and Central Asia. The exhibition ‘3,500 years of textile art’ guides you through Egyptian history with old fabrics, clothing and other archaeological finds. It is a permanent exhibition with over 600 objects, spread across 5 rooms in the HeadquARTers building.
Visitors can arrange a guided tour by appointment only. Tours last about two hours.
Burcht Singelberg is an architectonic delight, and home to organisations such as Katoen Natie and Indaver. Across the site there are a number of monumental and contemporary works of art on display. You will discover some surprising work by Flemish and foreign masters: Michael Aerts, Pablo Atchugarry, Wim Delvoye, Atelier van Lieshout, Hubert Minnebo, Jef Mouton and others.
The tour of the Singelberg site is entirely outdoors. So please do consider the weather conditions.
