3 unique locations

For an optimal experience of the exhibition, it is recommended to start your visit in the beautiful gardens of Villa Carpentier (1). Then, you'll cross Ronse, the Art Deco city, where you will discover the monumental, Romanesque St Hermes’ crypt (2), located in the historical city centre 'De Vrijheid'. Finally, the route will lead you to the contemporary-architectural site of cultural centre De Ververij (3). It is located in the former textile factory 'Teintureries Belges' and is now the beating cultural heart of the city.

QR codes will lead you to the visitor's guide or additional information on the artworks.
