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 a satanic ritual the altar is a naked woman; my altar is a German woman on her knees, dressed in black leather. For five minutes she sits motionless until the music stops, she turns to the audience and speaks the final words of the ritual called “Tierdrama” in which at the end all the participants leave on all fours."
