The Collection as a Character is a review of the M HKA collection after 25 years of creative contingency: visions articulated by forceful personalities, opportunities presenting themselves, limitations inspiring novel solutions. In other words, this project attempts to portray the character of the collection as it has been shaped by the reality of institutional art collecting for the public domain.
M HKA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, opened in 1987 with a retrospective of Gordon Matta-Clark, who had realised one of his last ‘cutting’ interventions, Office Baroque, in Antwerp ten years earlier.
