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.

"A collage of a text that I wrote in New York in 1980, and on top of it a self-portrait. Different materials and techniques glued to a piece of Plexiglas waste. A work about the individual’s relationship to the database. Green is the colour of peace and comfort. It’s a tribute to the database. It’s so calming to be in the database."
