STAMsquare: a mosaic of 100 dioramas
From June 27 until August 31 2021
As a city museum, STAM tells the story of Ghent and its residents. This summer, even the story of the neighborhood around the museum in a very special way: with 100 dioramas made by 100 local residents. Together, these boxes will form one big mosaic made of dioramas during the months of July and August. Stacked as a house containing many rooms, it’s a mosaic of 100 small city tales you can’t stop looking at.
The mosaic can be admired at STAMsquare.
When it reopened in December 2020, STAM unveiled STAMsquare, the square that varies in size and in what it contains and with a place for ‘The square kilometre’.
Come along to STAMsquare and discover the results of the first two instalments of the heritage project ‘The square kilometre’: Neuseplein and Brugse Poort.
The Watersportbaan cuts a shining swathe right through Ghent. It is the home base for Ghent’s Royal Rowing Club, the Koninklijke Roeivereniging Club Gent. This mini exhibition celebrates 150 years of Club Gent and looks at how the association helped to shape the city.
Feel free to touch! A fun children’s trail that leads through every room in the museum. Children become merchants, craftspeople, architects or city trippers and participate in city life. They sell cloth, make coats of arms, face façades and work out routes.
STAM turned ten last year... time for a make-over for the permanent exhibition! Since the end of 2020 you can stroll through the new Story of Ghent.
We recognize people by their silhouette, cities by their skyline. This exhibition challenges our often all too cursory glance at a city. STAM, in association with Museum Rotterdam.
