What’s the theme of the exhibition?

The title of the exhibition is “Au bout de mes rêves“ .

As with earlier exhibitions at the VanhaerentsArtCollection we also started from a pop song. This time with “Au bout de mes rêves” from Jean Jacques Goldmann from 1982 “Aller au bout de ses rêves est même prendre un risque, celui qu’il ne se réalise pas. Aller au bout de ses rêves, ça fait peur . Mais c’est aussi s’assurer de ne pas avoir de regrets…” , It’s a story of passion and wanting to go to the very end to achieve your dreams.


Is a visit with the company of someone from the family possible?
