Leuven and Park Abbey & PARCUM

Abdij van Park

‘‘(Un)worldly. Images of Seclusion and Liberation’ exhibition, brings religious art out of the private world of Flemish monasteries and abbeys and shows it to the general public for the very first time. It explores the meaning of seclusion in religious life.

What drives a person to retreat into a closed monastic community and to live by strict rules? This exhibition takes you on a journey through the world of monks and nuns, recluses, and hermits..

The exhibition reveals never-before-seen art treasures of Flemish churches, monasteries and abbeys and shows them next to new and existing work of Mario De Brabandere, Marlene Dumas & Ann Veronica Janssens.
