17/01/2017

The exhibition 'Birth of Capitalism' closed its doors on January 22nd, 2017. The exhibition has been made possible by Katoen Natie, Indaver and The Phoebus Foundation, under the auspices of the Province of East Flanders.

The exhibition was based on an initiative from two friends. Fernand Huts, president of Katoen Natie and Indaver, and Jozef Dauwe, Deputy of East Flanders. Together, they decided to tell the ‘Silicon Valley story’ of The Southern Netherlands (now Flanders) in the fifteenth and sixteenth century, through an art exhibition.
