Museums on Sensitive Topics
Kazerne Dossin (Mechelen), Museum Dr. Guislain (Ghent), Red Star Line Museum (Antwerp), the Africa Museum (Tervuren) and the In Flanders Fields Museum (Ypres) are all bound to politically charged place. Moreover, they all study sensitive issues from the past (genocide, psychiatry, migration, colonisation, war) that have great present-day value. The five museums have therefore entered into an informal collaboration. They exchange experiences, insights and new methods in order to translate these into their own workings and to be able to formulate a common voice in the public debate on these themes.
