Otegem receives art exhibition from Marc Coucke
Many successful entrepreneurs therefore also turn out to be successful art collectors. Like Marc Coucke, who wants to start his own museum with part of his artwork. His collection consists of eight hundred pieces with toppers such as Panamarenko, Jan Fabre and Wim Delvoye, but Marc Coucke is best known internationally as the Marcel Duchamp collector.
SMALL CENTURY BUSY
In addition to Coucke, Gerald Deweer opened his depot with more than 1700 works of art for the first time in forty years. It was father Marc Deweer who switched from carpets to art less than a century ago: the start of a top art collection. At an early age, son Gerald accompanied him on studio visits and to prestigious exhibitions. This is how he learned the tricks of collecting. Art and commerce apparently go well together.
