07.05.2021–07.11.2021 re-collect FOMU Photo Museum

Dirk Braeckman, Bieke Depoorter, Boris Mikhailov, Max Pinckers, Annemie Augustijns, David Claerbout, Jacques de Lalaing, Kimbei Kusakabe, Zanele Muholi, Vincent Delbrouck… These are just a few of the photographers whose work FOMU has acquired for its collection over the past 10 years.

re-collect takes you on an associative walk through a decade of acquisitions. The non-chronological approach encourages new connections to be made between the works. Three focal points tie them together: Belgian photographers, international socially relevant photography, and a clear cohesion with our exhibitions. re-collect offers a simultaneous glimpse of the collection’s past, present and future.

FOMU is home to a diverse, international collection of over three million objects, both historical and current. The collection is divided into four sub-collections: Images, Equipment, Funds and Books. Every year brings with it new acquisitions and donations.
