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.

"An image made during the preparation for De 5e kracht (The 5th Force). It’s an enlargement of a drawing that I made from an image of an SS soldier in the magazine Paris Match. I have always kept it; it's a beautiful soldier who opens his cloak to show that he is not carrying any weapons. Next to it hangs a still from Videoklok (Videoclock)."
