Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven (also known as AMVK) is an artist of singular complexity. Born in 1951 in Antwerp, where she still lives and works, she has been active since the 1970s as a visual artist, graphic designer and performer. She has always been a pioneer. She should, first and foremost, be considered an artist for the future. AMVK’s practice is truly interdisciplinary.

M HKA wants to introduce Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven to a wider audience as an innovator of forms and interpreter of moods - as oxygen of the whole society.

"On the occasion of his doctoral thesis Luc Steels asked me to draw a simulation of the dissection program he designed as proposal. He explained the functioning of his machine to me, and I drew it. The film was recorded in the AI-LAB of the UIA (Antwerp University). The film was presented to the doctoral jury as a support of Steels’ presentation."
