MU.ZEE offers an overview of Belgian visual art from 1860 to today, based on a museum collection consisting of 8,000 works of art. This collection builds on the collections of the City of Ostend and the Province of West Flanders, today the Flemish Community, which Mu.ZEE vzw has managed since 2008.
Artists such as James Ensor, Léon Spilliaert and Constant Permeke are well-represented. There are also important sub-collections of interwar artists, ensembles of artists working after World War II and from the 1980s and 1990s onwards. Thanks to an active procurement and donation agreement, Mu.ZEE has been able to acquire works of art by contemporary artists.

In the museum, you can experience an ever-changing collection presentation with a diversity of works. Browse further online here through the artwork. Selections appear step by step on this web page.
You can also search the results of three projects subsidised by Flanders:
A selection that follows from a collection valuation process (2018-2019): a reflection on the importance of the collection and how the various works of art are valuable to the museum.
Through the catch-up of digital collection registration (2020), the works of art by James Ensor, Léon Spilliaert, Constant Permeke, and contemporaries are online. These introduce you to the Ostend of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and demonstrate the importance of these works in the Mu.ZEE collection. In a second catch-up operation (2022-2023), the registration of the works of art on paper was addressed. More than half of the collection consists of works on paper, some of which can be found here.
