In this exhibition, contemporary art confronts closed-mindedness with an open approach. Inbetween the archaeological remains of the Teseum, you will discover nineteen contemporary works of art from the M HKA collection. They have been carefully selected in order to invite reflection and for visitors to question themselves and broaden their horizons. The central theme is the seclusion, the unknown world of the Tongeren chapter and the closed character of the monastic architecture. How do contemporary artists deal with seclusion, closed worlds and specific communities, but also with inclusion and exclusion?
It is a unique opportunity to discover contemporary art alongside 2000-year-old Roman remains or on the site of Tongeren's first church. This fantastic location provides a wonderful backdrop for art and is also a place where you can feel the connection between past and present.
