The south of Antwerp referred to as ‘t Zuid,’ has several museums, galleries, theatres and other cultural hot spots. In this patrician district, you will discover live music, screenings of classic movies, exhibitions, theatrical masterpieces, and so on.
The photo museum I frequently visit, abbreviated ‘FOMU,’ has a permanent collection and periodically places new exhibits in the spotlight. When the online teasers from the latest acquisitions appeal to me, they will succeed in extruding the last coins out of my pockets. Dirt poor or not, I will buy my entrance ticket, and that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
I am a late bloomer. A son of two hard working souls who taught me the importance of developing one’s awareness. A necessity that will help me to understand the meaning and value of freedom. It took me a while to wake up. So, I constantly try to catch up by educating myself. When I stroll through the museum, I let the latest creative augmentations inspire and teach me. Hence, my biased recommendation for this creative hotspot.
I often try to grasp the process of the imaginative minds who conceived the pieces of art being burnt on my retina. I feel a strong urge to liberate myself from society’s restraints and avoid becoming a stereotypical sheep. We have been subdued to massive indoctrination. However, ingenious locations like Antwerp’s FOMU help you to reciprocate what is in your nature. As society’s shackles limit your persona. Enjoy the exhibited creativity and broaden your horizon.
