St Peter's Abbey

For many inhabitants of Ghent, public space is a second home. Last summer, photographers Yasmina Besseghir and Sipan Hota criss-crossed the whole city to depict these places. A selection of their work can be seen until 18 September during the exhibition 'Espace Publiek' in the St. Peter's Abbey. Come and rediscover the places we often take for granted. (free entrance)
