Dragons. They can be cantankerous and ugly, but they can also be cute and cuddlesome or stunningly beautiful. Meet heroes who slay dragons and dragons that protect us.
Friend or foe, the dragon is of all times and cultures. It is man who has given meaning to this mythical creature, who has bestowed on it the moral and physical qualities that make it distinctive. At the same time everything about a dragon’s outward appearance is also found in nature, including the fire-eating and multiple heads aspects.
This exhibition is a combination of fascinating cultural and historical objects, intriguing legends, links with the present day and pickled animals. Not forgetting the dragon’s skeleton put together specially for this exhibition!
Everyone, young and old should make a date with the dragon at STAM, a cross between fact and fiction. For children aged 6 and over there are ‘dragon rooms’ where they can look, read, build and play.
Cities face a series of challenges. A city is never a finished product, and Ghent is growing.23.10.2016 till 07.05.2017
