Collection news

S.M.A.K. and Design Museum Gent want to gain more insight into the different types of plastic in collection pieces in order to be able to conserve and restore them better.

This week, Austrian artist Lois Weinberger passed away. S.M.A.K. has assembled the most significant and most representative ensemble of his work and devoted solo exhibitions to his oeuvre in both 2005 and 2015. In honour of this very committed artist, S.M.A.K. looked through its museum archives.

We think it is important to give some color and sense to our necessary isolation, (tele)work and care for our elderly and children through art.
