The south of Antwerp, locally referred to as ‘t Zuid’ has several museums, galleries, theatres and other cultural hot spots. Live music, screenings from classical movies, astonishing exhibitions, theatrical masterpieces, and so on, you’ll discover it all in this patrician district of Antwerp.
Personally I’m a late bloomer, a son of two hardworking human beings who taught me the importance of developing one’s awareness in order to understand the meaning and value of freedom. I woke up in time and daily try to educate myself. Strolling around in FoMu and being inspired by the latest acquisitions is one of my favorite educational formats. Henceforth my biased recommendation.
This is a museum I visit frequently. The photo museum, 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’ll succeed in extruding the last coins out of my pockets. Dirt poor or not, I will buy my entrance ticket, and that’s just how the cookie crumbles.
I often try to grasp the process of the imaginative minds who conceived the pieces of art being burnt on my retina. I don’t want to be a stereotypical sheep. I feel a strong urge to free myself from society’s restraints. We’ve been subdued to massive indoctrination, but creative locations like Antwerp’s photo museum help you to reciprocate what’s in your nature while society’s shackles limit your personality. Enjoy the exhibited creativity and broaden your horizon.
