Permeke Museum

With the renovated museum, we want to put Constant Permeke back on the national and international map, and break away from the one-sided view of his oeuvre. The house features a permanent display that is designed to contextualise the artist. It includes artworks, tools, archive material, photos, films and a plethora of stories. A digital walking tour has been created for the museum and garden. All information is available in four languages.

Studio Permeke

The Permeke Studio is the innovative heart of the Permeke Museum, a space where ideas can burgeon playfully and personal creative work can flourish; where there’s room for discovery and experimentation, reflection and doubt, collaboration and introspection.

We organise a wide range of activities for schools, families and individual visitors, including holiday camps, Wednesday afternoon workshops, family sessions, birthday parties, collaborations with schools, training courses for teachers, concerts and lectures. The Permeke Museum’s activities are always centred on Permeke’s art and are designed to explore fresh perspectives.

Studio Permeke is accessible via a small staircase or via the door from outside. This door is 65 cm wide.

Permeke’s witnesses

In collaboration with Jabbeke Council, we launched a call for people who knew Permeke during his lifetime. Seven extraordinary testimonies were recorded and incorporated into the new presentation in the artist’s home.

Do you have a great story of your own about Constant Permeke?
