At STAMplein square, a separate part of the museum with changing programmes, you can visit the heritage project “The square kilometre”. Here you can learn all about the Ledeberg neighbourhood. Historian in residence Tina de Gendt searched for hidden histories in Ledeberg with a group of enthusiastic ‘rememberers’. They searched for urban legends and discussed open questions. Questions about the neighbourhood and its residents, about the city, about yesterday, today, tomorrow, and about so much more. You can discover the result of their search in the STAM.

At STAMplein square, a separate part of the museum with changing programmes, you can visit the exhibition “Heavy Metal”. Finds from cities with a medieval past give us an insight into the daily lives, the work and the lifestyle of people living centuries ago. This exhibition highlights a rich, but underappreciated archaeological subject from our medieval cities: metal finds. The ‘Medieval Metal’ research project funded by the Flemish agency for immovable heritage (2020-2022) mapped the great diversity of metal objects from urban excavations. You can discover the results on STAMplein square. Prefer not to wait in line at the ticket booth? Want to be sure you can discover the STAM when you want to?

Marc Sleen would have celebrated his one hundredth birthday in 2022 . His brainchild Nero reached the age of 75. Two reasons for the Marc Sleen Foundation and the STAM museum to organise an exhibition at the STAMplein square. Cities play an important in Marc Sleen’s oeuvre.  His native town of Ghent and other cities like Antwerp and Brussels often serve as the setting for the adventures of Nero & Co. The exhibition “The city speaks” not only displays original works by Marc Sleen but also by a new generation of comic book authorise like Judith Van Istendael, Guy Delisle, Joost Swarte, Aimée de Jongh and Tardi. Each of them portrays a city they have a special connection with.

Data onder voorbehoud. Het STAM plant een tentoonstelling over het silhouet van een stad. Vertrekkend van een aantal Vlaamse en Nederlandse steden tonen we hoe steden zich op de kaart zetten en de skyline in hun beeldvorming uitspelen als troef. Zowel vroeger als vandaag, wereldwijd en over verschillende eeuwen heen!
In 2020 bestaat het STAM tien jaar. Tijd voor een verjongingskuur van de vaste tentoonstelling. Vanaf 7 december 2020 flaneer je in ‘Het verhaal van Gent’ nieuwe stijl tussen perkamenten abten, ondernemende vrouwen, verliefde rebellen en zelfzuchtige weldoeners van de middeleeuwen tot nu. Je ziet en voelt de stad groeien en veranderen van vorm. Je ontdekt unieke objecten en natuurlijk is er ook een verse versie van onze (nog altijd even gigantische) luchtfoto.
