The M HKA – the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp embodies Antwerp’s rich cultural past and present. Showcasing contemporary art, film and visual culture in its widest sense, the museum has been playing a leading role in the art scene in Flanders and beyond by building on Antwerp’s avant-garde tradition for over three decades. Since April, the M HKA has opened a permanent, freeto-visit collection exhibition presenting iconic masterpieces from Flemish and international artists. The M HKA bridges the relationship between artistic questions and wider societal issues, between the international and the regional, artists and public, tradition and innovation, reflection and presentation.
