As part of the exhibition Her Voice - Echoes of Chantal Akerman, FOMU invites Dis Mon Nom to let the voices of multidisciplinary artists and collectives resonate within the museum walls, offering spaces of collective intimacy where people are able to express themselves and find common ground.

FOMU is a place not only for looking but for doing, feeling and sharing. FOMU NIGHTS take us deeper into the topics raised by the exhibitions. We invite partners who work with these themes and add a unique, celebratory spirit to the evenings. From performances and discussions to food and afterparties, every FOMU NIGHT is different. More than exhibition openings, these are open evenings where you are free to explore, create and experience. The exhibition, the shop and the cafe are open the entire evening.
