Van Gogh, a Life in Places

Early in his career, as he grappled with the idea of becoming an artist, Vincent van Gogh attempted portraiture, possibly with a mission in the religious sense. His models were impoverished miners, weavers and peasants. Later, his great achievement was in still life, landscape painting and further portraits all closely related to the places where he lived. He moved from place to place, from his parents' vicarage to the homes of impoverished peasants, from seaside Ramsgate, and landmarks in London to the heights of Montmartre, from the famous Yellow House in Arles to hospital then a nearby asylum. Finally, he wandered the fields and streets of Auvers, near Paris. Wherever he lived, he drew and painted. As well as the places where he stayed, he painted the homes of others, and monuments that attracted him, such as churches or even suburban factories. These became the subject of an alternative kind of portraiture - one that did not involve people. His developing, emphatic and highly individual style suited the different character of the buildings he so carefully recorded. Each place, about which he also wrote at length, provides us with a solid framework with which to follow and understand him. Van Gogh's life will be revealed not only through the included illustrations of his art, but with much quotation from letters. 'Van Gogh, a Life in Places' hopes to answer the questions: Why was he there?

Een andere wereld | Un autre monde | Another World

Waar ligt de grens tussen fantasie en werkelijkheid? Hoe onderscheid je droom van delirium, waan van wens, hallucinatie van inzicht? Op welke manier kan je onderzoeken of verbeelden wat zich ergens anders afspeelt? De tentoonstelling neemt, vertrekkend van de vele vragen rond psychose, hallucinatie en waan, twee eeuwen in ogenschouw. Niet om een historisch verhaal te vertellen, maar om uit die periode vijf eigenzinnige oeuvres te lichten die balanceren tussen kunst, kunde en wetenschap. Where does reality end and fantasy begin? When can we talk about an hallucination? How do we bridge the gap between our world and others; and imagine or research what is happening elsewhere? 'Another World' opens the gateway to alternative realities. It shows how science and art have explored the unknown areas of the mind for the last two centuries. As innovative as it is offbeat; this story begins with selections from the oeuvres of four amazing creative thinkers; each of whom have generated a different world. From walking pencils to flying bicycles; materialised ghosts and optical illusions; nothing is too odd for this book and its curious insights into the human mind. The Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent is a unique and prestigious museum with a vast collection on the history of psychiatry; and an internationally acclaimed collection of outsider art. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions based on their fascination for the not-ordinary ; where delusion and science; art and culture; are exposed in a different way.
