Our story

With the museum fund M-LIFE, M connects people, art and history Today, tomorrow, and into the future.

M-LIFE was created in 2016 and supports various projects of M Leuven

People often asked how they could support M. M also received occasional gifts. Logically, we wanted to be transparent and tell the outside world what we were going to do with those gifts. Therefore, a fund was set up within the King Baudouin Foundation: M-LIFE

M Leuven, visual culture then and now

Proud of its roots and collection, M dares to experiment. The combination of contemporary art and old masters makes the museum unique in Flanders. Visual culture then and now, all under one roof.

In order to connect people, art and history, M strives for a healthy mix of public and private funding. Your donation helps us in various ways; to conserve our collection, to conduct scientific research into our heritage, to organize state of the art exhibitions, to support the art(ists) of tomorrow, and to enable children and adults of diverse backgrounds to discover art.

Kunst is voor iedereen

Art is for everyone

The past few months have made two things very clear to us. One: art is an essential part of our society. Two: this means we need artists, and – more importantly – they need us. M, the city of Leuven and Cera therefore want to invest in upcoming Belgian talent by purchasing their work. To that extent, M-LIFE is launching a crowdfunding campaign to support the importance of art in society.
