PiKANT! (lace is more)


The exhibition invites the visitor to explore five centuries of lace and art history.

Lace as a life thread takes the visitor on a journey through time. Top art pieces from art history - with names like Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens - and unlikely highlights from the history of lace show the life course of man, from baptism through to marriage and to death.

Spicy Lace presents the history of  lingerie in the 20th century, in a spectacular staging. In the lead roles: corsets, bras, panties and unique vintage cars in a naughty dialogue.

Lace as Art shows superb pieces of contemporary lace art, with international and monumental highlights in the lane of the castle, in the heritage chapel of Sint-Gudala and in the St. Martin's church of Moorsel.
