The M HKA’s contemporary art collection has grown thanks to a combination of acquisitions, donations and long-term loans from various public collections. The historical basis for the collection goes back to the ICC activities (International Cultural Centre) in Antwerp in the 1970s. The M HKA collection continues to grow in the areas of the post-war avant-garde tradition in Antwerp and the wider region in north-western Europe, today's multipolar world, the importance of the 'performative' aspect and social commitment, but also with regard to the nature and role of images today. Here, we present a selection of works from a broad spectrum of different sensitivities, regions, research areas and stories from our collection.
