Out of the Box - Dr Guislain Museum

Return to activities

In the Dr Guislain Museum, the GUM will enter into dialogue with Professor Ignaas Devisch (bioethics, Ghent University) and visual artist Alexi Williams Wynn.

Four cultural institutions from Ghent and their audience take a closer look and discuss items from the Ghent University's academic collections. At various locations, various aspects of science and scientific research is highlighted through philosophical questions in the form of installations or a pop-up exhibition.

The interventions attract attention and surprise. By removing the scientific objects from their original context, the interventions lead to reflections on science and its relationship to culture and society. For every installation, the GUM has invited a co-curator to use his or her expertise to help the project and encourage substantive discussion.
