Acquisition policy

Are you considering offering a work of art to the museum? First of all, thank you for considering M!

Please provide a written file - with images - about your (long-term) loan, donation, bequest or sale and contact Marjan Debaene for further information. After advice from the scientific staff, the city counsil will make a final decision.

Loan requests

We go the extra mile to transport a collection piece. Therefore, please request your loan for an exhibition in time. All information and conditions can be obtained through Marjan Debaene.


M has an extensive and specialized library. It is accessible by appointment to researchers and individuals. Requested publications are made available for consultation by appointment. If you would like to know whether a particular work is part of the library’s collection, please contact Anne Liefsoens.


Following the temporary closure due to the preventative measures implemented against the coronavirus, you can now contact the M Library again for consultation by appointment. To ensure that your visit is as safe as possible, we are taking a number of safety measures. You will find an overview here.

Image requests

Would you like to use a high-resolution photo of a collection piece from M? Please contact Ko Goubert for information and modalities. Be sure to take a look at as a large number of artworks from the M collection is already available there.
