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.

"In the space of Art Something in Amsterdam I recorded a movie in my exhibition/installation. There were about forty large and small pieces of perspex hanging at chest height, with texts about art, science, future and logics, combined with abstract signs, points, lines and smudges in phlorescent colours. One had to squeeze through the works in order to see anything. Art Something was an alternative bookshop that mainly catered for artist books and editions."
