MUHKAs full name is Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen, or Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp. It has been housed in a converted grain silo and adjoining warehouse since 1987. This renovation and change of use is very much in keeping with the attention that is now being paid to the fascinating urban planning of the Zuid or South area of the city.
The MUHKAs 4.000 square metres of exhibition space devoted to art from 1970 to the present day. The building and the collection, which of course is constantly being added to, belongs to the Flemish Community. Moreover, the museum has the Matta-Clark Foundation collection in its possession for an indeterminate period of time. Initially it formed the basis of the MUHKA collection and consists of more than 150 works by Belgian and international artists.
MUHKA.ORG is taking a leading position in the promotion of digital art in Flanders. This website wants to motivate current investors to buy, collect, and value contemporary artwork, including webart and electronic works, which unfortunately the museum cannot display.
A number of temporary exhibitions are mounted each year.
