Since 2019 S.M.A.K. has an exhaustive inventory of the museum collection that was published in a seven-part publication. In six of the seven parts, all works of art from the collection can be found in alphabetical order, each with an image and all related basic information.

Not only images of these 2000 works were included in this publication, but also texts about the slightly more than 300 most important artists from the collection, written by various authors over the past 5 years. Contributions were made by Katrien Blanchaert, Jo Coucke, Isabelle De Baets, Marie Decoodt, Ory Dessau, Wouter De Vleeschouwer, Lotte Devoeght, Martin Germann, Julie Verheye and Thibaut Verhoeven.

This publication also contains an accompanying text section with illuminating contributions about the history and current state of affairs of the S.M.A.K., written by Philippe Van Cauteren and Thibaut Verhoeven.

The integral collection inventory describes all works of art that are managed by the S.M.A.K. and that are considered never to leave the collection.

Works of art on long-term loan with no prospect of acquisition for the collection are not included.
