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.

"The catalogue is an integral part of the show, augmenting it, yet an identity of its own. Only to a small extent will it offer an explanation or documentation to the show. Its major part will be devoted to the presentation of subjects, aspects and themes which are either better suited for the printed medium, too expensive to show otherwise, or demand another kind of involvement."

– Hans Hollein
