    From 19 April 2016 in the MASboulevard
    "The corner shop" highlights the colourful history of Antwerp's shops and shopkeepers in the MASboulevard. The MAS asked the photographer Sanne De Wilde to find out more about the people who run local shops in the city today. The result is a colourful and diverse portrait series. Combined with old photos, the exhibition shows the human face behind the corner shops of the city since the Fifties.
