Collections

Since 1987, as the Contemporary art Center of the French Community, the Photography Museum is based in an old refurnished monastery.

Nowadays due to the extention in 2008 of the new contemporary wing, funded by the group FEDER, the museum has become massive and one of the most imporatnt photographic museum in Europe, displaying more than 2200m² of an artistic variety and technical progress of photography.

Nine exhibitions per year, about 3 simultaneous exhibits, provide an in-depth study of the numerous facets of the photographic image. Every four months, its creative, documentary and historical aspect are shown in turn, sketching as broad a panorama as possible of both belgian and international historical and contemporary photography.
