The IKOB – Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen is located in the Germanspeaking part of Belgium, close to the German and the Dutch border. Its program focuses on emerging and leading contemporary art through the constitution of a significant collection (in progress) and temporary exhibitions (in dialogue). Functioning as a discursive platform for contemporary art with its multidisciplinary and thematic exhibition program and concerned with critical and socio-political issues, the ikob attempts to reflect the matter of the frontier.
