Out of the Box

Under Time's Spell: exhibition and e-book

Do you ever wonder how time was measured and imagined in Europe from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century? Wondering how Venus helped to determine cosmic distances in 1761 and 1769? And do you want to know how you could conquer land by planting a flag and three cannon shots? Then you have to read 'Under Time's Spell' by Maarten van Dyck. He wrote the book as curator of the exhibition with the same name, which is still to be visited in Saint Peter's Abbey in Ghent until 25 March.
The English version of the e-book can be read here. Rather a French version? That is possible too.

Design Museum, Museum Dr. Guislain and Saint Bavo's Cathedral

In addition to the complete exhibition in the abbey, you can visit the Design Museum and the Museum Dr. Guislain for an intervention that reflects on the relations between art and science. With the skeleton of whale Leo in Saint Bavo's Cathedral, the same reflection is made on religion and science.
