SMAK (Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst Gent)

Recommended
This museum, housed in the former Flower Show Hall, illustrates changes in art from the 1950s to the present day. Its director and curator is Jan Hoet, the "enfant terrible" of the contemporary arts world, who organised the Documenta IX Exhibition in Kassel, Germany. Note the Aeromodeller by Panamarenko, Two Watchmen by J. Muñoz, Le Gardien de notre potager by T. De Cordier and La Toilette by I. Kabakov.
