The Vanhaerents Art Collection is a family collection of contemporary art containing works from the 1970s until today.
It thus offers the possibility to confront works from emerging young artists with those of more established artists by whom they were inspired.

The film Marilyn conjures up Marilyn Monroe through a phantasmagoric séance in a suite at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York, where she lived in the 50s.
It reproduces Monroe’s presence by means of three algorithms: the camera becomes her eyes, a computer reconstructs the prosody of her voice and a robot recreates her handwriting.
