Antwerp 1920-2020: Standing in Solidarity, United Under the Same Flag

25 JUNE - 31 DECEMBER 2020

In the Museum's Artlounge, an exhibition on the centenary of the Antwerp Olympic Games in 1920 is in dialogue with the current health issues of our time. Yesterday's archives reason with the testimonies of today's athletes.

One hundred years ago the Olympic flag appeared in the Antwerp stadium: the athletes, united under the same flag, regained their confidence following the events of the Spanish flu and the Second World War. Today, The Olympic Movement launches the digital campaign #staystrong #stayactive #stayhealthy and the Olympic flag is still an invitation to contribute to a better world through sport.
