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.

"Every Filosofische ruimte is a computer interpretation of an existing interior, in which I redefine the visual aspect according to the philosopher's mental impact. The name becomes a presence in space in the form of a word. I made my first Filosofische ruimte, Descartes, in 1998. Then Spinoza and Leibniz. Each space is given a different appearance, based on the philosopher's theory. It is me, the avatar, who welcomes the specific theory in an interior that is adapted to the circumstances. I take the liberty of drawing a very precise connection between each philosopher and my own personal evolution as a thinker."
