On Sunday 12 September, the 33rd edition of Open Monument Day will take place. Kunsthal Gent asked Roger Van Bockstaele, the 98-year-old Eredeken of the Royal Patershol Deanery, to share his secrets about the most special places of the Carmelite convent.

There will also be a second recent video, in which the Eredeken talks about the Oud Huis, the small chapel with 15th-century wall painting.


Sunday 12 September, 11.00 - 18.00

Ongoing video tour - premiere!
Camera and editing: Shivadas De Schrijver.
A collaboration with the Patershol Royal Dekenij.

NB During Open Monument Day, only the Oud Huis is open to the public. The rest of Kunsthal Gent will be closed for the installation of 2 new exhibitions (opening: Friday evening, 24 September).
