From the very beginning, Annick and Anton Herbert attach great value to the manner in which art works are presented. In the 1980s they acquire the former frame factory G & A Van Den Bogaerde at the Raas van Gaverestraat 106 / 108 in Ghent. The oldest part of the building dates back to the 1920s. The objective during the renovations of the building is to preserve the original industrial character as much as possible. Besides a living area, the building 106 includes a private exhibition space extending over several floors. This is where Annick and Anton installed the works from their Collection since the 1980s, often in collaboration with the artists.
Since 2022, the exhibition spaces in the building 106 can be visited weekly accompanied by a guide. Visitors discover key works from the collection and, above all, experience the dedication with which Annick and Anton lived for and with art.
