World Wide Wonders is an exhibition that draws inspiration from the rich and fascinating museum collections of Ghent University. The participating artists were invited to visit one or more collections and work with the ‘wonders’ they encountered. Man’s search for truth, and his attempt to categorise or capture the wonders of the world, are central themes in the exhibition.
