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 portrait of the businessman as a dandy-like Mephistopheles figure, inspired by a 1948 blues song with the same title, by Sunnyland Slim. I really like blues. With the wordplay 'the devil is a businessman' in mind. He does have something very tempting, such a businessman."
