Collection In Transit

Preparations are underway for the large-scale relocation of FOMU’s collection to the new collection tower, the first low-energy depot for photography in Europe.

We are taking this opportunity to present a look behind the scenes at the work that goes into conserving a collection. The collection team will occupy a temporary transit zone that is open to the public.

Collection In Transit allows you to follow the objects on their journey to their new home as they are registered, described and restored. Observe all the aspects of collection conservation in the photography studio, restoration workshops and registration-unit.

Discover the stories – big and small – behind the pieces in the FOMU collection. Witness unexpected discoveries as the team processes a constant stream of old and new material.

Curators: Caroline Vincart and Tamara Berghmans
