SMAK (Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst Gent)

Recommended
This museum was founded and run for many years by Jan Hoet, the "enfant terrible" of the international contemporary arts world. The extremely interesting collection (exhibited by rotation) follows the development of art from the 1950s to the present day. Works on display here include the Aeromodeller by Panamarenko, Two Watchmen by J. Muñoz, Le Gardien de notre potager by T. De Cordier and La Toilette by I. Kabakov.
