Case Study

How the multidisciplinary MAS project team cooperated with shopkeepers, chefs, artists and futurologists to create the permanent exhibition about cities and food.


ANTWERP A LA CARTE is a new permanent exhibition of the MAS. It shows how the city of Antwerp fed a growing population from the sixteenth century onwards and questions how cities will continue to do this in the distant future.

The MAS created the exhibition with a multidisciplinary project team, project leader, curator, educator, community participation manager, communication manager and (external) scenographer.

The MAS engaged external partners: artists, academic advisory board members, focus groups … and in this case also chefs and futurologists. The MAS invests strongly in the in-depth collaboration with diverse communities, in this case Antwerp shopkeepers.
