Interest in global themes such as passion, youth, archetype and ambiguity meet in the rooms of the museum, highlighting interesting aspects of Van Noten's creative work, such as, for example, the concept of gender.

The exhibition opens its doors to the public today, Friday 13 February, and will end on 19 July 2015.
