About the soft and the productive museum, 2021


To what extent does museum architecture provide an answer to today’s challenges for museums? Valerie Verhack, curator of Thomas Demands exhibition ‘House of Card’ in M Leuven, talks about it with architects Adam Caruso (Caruso St John Architects) and Freek Persyn (51N4E).

The two worked on architecture proposals for two Belgian museums: ‘KANAL’ in Brussels (in collaboration with Thomas Demand) and ‘M HKA’ in Antwerp. The two projects addressed the concepts of 'Soft Museum' and 'Productive Museum'.

The online lecture was organized by M Leuven, as part of the lecture series Food for Thought during the timeframe of Demand's exhibition. Read more about Food for Thought and M Leuven here
