Collages & Assemblages
An exceptional array of roughly 4500, particularly twentieth century, collages and assemblages lies at the heart of the private collection. A separate exhibition space has been specially designed to permanently display part of the collection.
Since the opening of the Verbeke Foundation in 2007, the collection has been expanded with contemporary works and installations which were predominantly constructed in situ and integrated inside and outside the exhibition halls. The works of bio-artists and artists working with living materials (plants, animals) take a separate place in the contemporary art collection and connect seamlessly with the desire of the Verbeke Foundation in order to be a place where culture, nature and ecology come together.
