In the summer of 2015, Ghent devotes itself to photography. Works by Belgian and international photographers – both up-and-coming and well-known –will be showcased in unusual and magical settings, from gardens to buildings. Photography and heritage seamlessly blend together. The topic of this summer photography festival is identity.
STAM is one of ten locations in the 2015 Ghent Photo Festival. Here, too, heritage and photography converge this summer in three series of photographs by Sanne De Wilde on display in the old Bijloke abbey.
Photographer Sanne De Wilde (°Antwerp, 1987) is best known for her projects featuring dwarfs and albinos, which are exhibited together this summer for the first time at STAM:Samoa Kekea (see photo) and Snow White.www.sannedewilde.com
For citybooks Gent, a project mounted by the Flemish-Dutch cultural organization deBuren in which STAM was also involved, in the autumn of 2014 Sanne De Wilde set about capturing Ghent in a series of night shots. This portrait of Ghent is on show for the first time at STAM.
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.
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.
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.
