M HKA – the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp – is one of the eight major institutions of the Flemish Community.
The museum keeps its finger on the pulse of current events in contemporary art both at home and abroad. Located in the avant-garde city par excellence, M HKA houses a rich and diverse collection which it displays in frequently changing presentations both inside and outside the museum.

M HKA is a dynamic meeting place for art, artists and culture lovers alike; every year, it presents a versatile exhibition program that is supplemented with numerous artists' talks, performances, lectures, book presentations, walking talks and activities for young and old. Also, every Thursday, the museum is open at night until 9 p.m.

The M HKAFE, M HKA’s welcoming cafeteria, is the ideal place for a drink or a delicious lunch.

Another initiative housed at M HKA is Cinema Zuid.
In the building of the FotoMuseum – where Cinema Zuid has made its home since 2009 – daily film screenings are organized in two state-of-the-art viewing rooms.
Cinema Zuid brings the history of cinema to life with its series of screening sessions such as Film Histories, Series and Matinees. The history of the medium is constantly being rewritten, forgotten films are rediscovered, supposedly lost films are recovered, classics are reissued, silent films are given new music ... Cinema South provides a rich movie experience, put into context through numerous introductions, lectures and seminars.
