Collection Management


The Collection Management Department is responsible for maintaining, managing, documenting and, if need be, restoring the museum collection.

The Department creates opportunities for a broad as well as a specialised audience to become acquainted with the collection, which constitutes an important part of the Flemish cultural heritage. Furthermore, it is the department's task to manage and optimise the accessibility of the museum library, archives and documentation centre.


  • To become a reference in the field of collection management.
  • To develop a library that pertains to the collection, that is accessible online and that can, in a subsequent phase, be integrated at the level of the Flemish Art Museums within the framework of the Flanders Bureau for Art-Historical Documentation.
  • To develop a centre of expertise in the field of the conservation and restoration of paintings from the 14th to the 20th centuries.

Yolande Deckers is the head of the Collection Management Department.
