The Bridge

as from the last two years of primary education

Go for S.M.A.K. and MSK and bridge the gap. Together with the guide you can look for differences, similarities and captivating stories that link together artworks and artists past and present. Cross the street and visit both the S.M.A.K. and the MSKGhent: two buildings, two histories, two collections. Is contemporary art really so difficult or is it late mediaeval symbolism that turns out to be really the more abstract?

Age group: children of 10 to 12 years + adolescents of 12 to 18 years
Duration: 2 hours (MSKGhent / S.M.A.K.)
Price per guide: 85 euro
Max. 20 children per guide


Walk & Talk

higher education students

What is your definition of art? How conditioned are your view of the world and the way you see art? How deeply coloured is your cultural outlook? Could you do it too, or does the artist after all do something you could not? And what role do artists, art and museums play in today’s art? Lots of questions for an exciting conversation as you walk round the museum.

Duration: 1.5 hours
