The Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA) is an international museum, with its own collection and temporary exhibitions. Dominating the Zuid, one of Antwerp’s trendiest districts, it is surrounded by galleries and cosy cafes. The M HKA moves – artistically, it doesn’t shy away from the alternative. Artists of all ilks regularly appear to associate their vision and talent with the works of art in the museum.
This museum has been housed in a converted grain silo and adjoining warehouse since 1987. The M HKA’s 4,000 square metres of exhibition space are devoted to art from 1970 to the present.
Next to changing collection presentations and four major projects a year, M HKA has a varied programme of performances, lectures, concerts, debates, guided tours, museum chats and breakfasts.
