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 beginning of my project Sex and Technology, based on the reuse of images of women in the nude press. Here I have used images of women covering their sex while looking at the viewer, and connected them with two photographs I took in the former concentration camp at Terezin/Theresienstadt in the Czech Republic. The aestheticising of terror from the past is a very widespread phenomenon, which apparently answers to some kind of need… I asked a friend to sing the second voice of a Bach cantata three times, and then I layered these three versions on top of each other."
