Art in the City

Under the banner of Art in the City (Kunst in de Stad), the Middelheim Museum manages, expands, and researches the urban public art collection.

In addition to this collection-driven work, Art in the City also initiates temporary art projects and conducts research into the history and social significance of art in public space in Antwerp and beyond. Art in the City also offers advice and guidance on new art commissions to other municipal departments and public institutions.

New project

Beyond the Center

Six new public art commissions combine local prompts with singular artistic visions.

The collection

Statues, monuments and other artworks adorn the streets, squares and parks in Antwerp.

Exhibitions and projects

Art in the City organises short-term projects and art interventions in public space in Antwerp.


The ambition to make information about the Art in the City collection accessible to the public and art professionals, gives rise to a focus on research, debate and reflection.
