VIDEO | Inside the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp

The Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp (RMFAA) or Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten van Antwerpen (KMSKA) closed in 2011 for renovations. There’s no real deadline for the reopening.

But in the meantime, the museum filmed the now empty and renovated museum. The result is quite spectacular.

FAAM

The RMFAA is due to have a new name: Flemish Antwerp Art Museum. The acronym, FAAM, means fame in Dutch. The name change is also ideological. 

Culture is a regional competence, so the museum resorts from Flanders. And The Flemish Government is allergic to anything Belgian and certainly anything royal. Another example is the Royal Ballet Flanders which is now Ballet Flanders
