New at Mu.ZEE: The Raoul Servais Wing

Where:
Mu.ZEE
When:
30/06/18 to 30/06/21

Raoul Servais (born 1 May 1928, Ostend) is a renowned animation filmmaker. In the early 1950s he studied applied arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent (KASK). Servais painted and drew, and was very active in graphics too, but from the beginning his heart was always in animation films. The artist had neither experience nor financial means, but his curiosity and drive were enormous. In 1960 he was able to start work as a teacher at KASK, where he developed the first animated film course in Europe. In total, he made sixteen animated films. Between Havenlicht (Harbour Light, 1960) and Tank (2015) there is a gigantic evolution in style and technique. With each new film production, you feel his curiosity for new and hitherto unknown ways of creating imagery and atmosphere. Raoul Servais has won many international film prizes, such as the Palme d’Or in Cannes (Operation X-70, 1971 & Harpya, 1979) and the Primo Premio in Venice (Chromophobia, 1966). Servais’s love of animation is a shared love. As of summer 2018, it can be enjoyed on a permanent basis in the Raoul Servais Wing of Mu.ZEE. A large selection of original documents, (cellophane) drawings and films will have a permanent place there. This wing of the museum is not intended to be the end destination for the rich oeuvre of this star of the film industry, but a new start, an inspiring place for young filmmakers.

Exhibition: Destruction & reconstruction. Oostende 1944-1958

Where:
Venetiaanse Gaanderijen
When:
25/05/19 to 29/09/19

Ostend suffered heavily during the Second World War. All that was left in 1944 was a destroyed city, in ruins. Prominent buildings like the city hall, the Kursaal, the main post office, the hippodrome and the fish mine, as well as many picturesque houses along the coast, were razed to the ground. Not only that, important decisions with regard to urban planning made before the war were rejected. After the war, the then mayor Henri Serruys embarked on the reconstruction of his city.
